Friday, Sept. 7, 11 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time
Central Park, near East 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10065
This stamp, honoring legendary singer and songwriter John Lennon, is the latest in a series of Music Icons stamps. Beloved around the world, Lennon was successful both as a founding member of the Beatles and as a solo artist. Lennon’s music continues to speak for truth, peace, and tolerance.
The stamp artwork features a 1974 photo of John Lennon taken by noted rock music photographer Bob Gruen for Lennon’s “Walls and Bridges” album. The stamp pane resembles a vintage 45-rpm record sleeve and features Lennon at his white piano on the reverse side. The photograph, taken by Peter Fordham, was used to promote Lennon’s landmark 1971 solo album, “Imagine.”
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. This ceremony is free and open to the public.
