Honor how art was used to inspire a nation with this new set of ten WPA Posters Digital Color Postmark First Day Covers. Each #6 envelope bears one affixed Forever® stamp cancelled with an official First Day of Issue color postmark.

As part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal, artists were hired to create posters that fueled American pride and identity as they advertised specific projects such as domestic tourism, health, education, recreation, and the arts. WPA artists designed and printed some two million posters from approximately 35,000 designs. This booklet of 20 stamps features ten different Depression-era posters produced by the Works Progress Administration.

The digital color postmark incorporates lines radiating energetically from behind a vertical arrangement of stars and stripes visually reminiscent of the Art Deco architecture of the 1930s. Also included are the stamp title, as well as the date and location of stamp issuance: March 7, 2017, Hyde Park, NY 12538.

Made in the USA.
