Miles Davis and Édith Piaf Honored With New Postage Stamps
On June 12th, the United States and France postal services will issue stamps honoring two esteemed legends: jazz musician Miles Davis and French singer Édith Piaf.
Designed by Greg Breeding, the stamps depict the artists in their most iconic poses using a photo of Davis with his trumpet in 1970 by David Gahr and a photo of Piaf from the Michael Ochs Archives.
Priced at 45 cents, the Forever® series stamps will be available for purchase nationwide. There is also a design, as well as specific guidelines for postmarks of the stamps. More information is available at usps.com.
