New Postage Stamp Features Cape Resident’s Artwork
The US Postal Service released a new postcard stamp that features the artwork of Cape resident John Burgoyne.
The US Postal Service asked Burgoyne, 60, of West Barnstable, three years ago to illustrate an apple for a stamp, according to the Boston Globe.
Burgoyne used pen, ink and watercolor to create a series of 4 apples for the postal service. The four apples will be featured on 33-cent postcard stamps. One apple is the Massachusetts Baldwin apple.
The stamps can be purchased in rolls of 100 or sets of 20 at post offices across the country.
