Ralph Ellison stamp

[Click for a much larger view.]

I’m a year late, but my knowledge of stamps is limited to what I see — or in this case what Elaine sees — in our post office. In 2014 the United States Postal Service issued a stamp honoring Ralph Ellison. Art by Kadir Nelson, from a photograph by Gordon Parks. Design by Ethel Kessler. Ninety-one cents = three ounces.

The USPS has a page with three writers’ thoughts about Ellison (who was born 101 years ago yesterday).
