    The newest stamps in the Music Icons series honor singer and songwriter John Lennon (1940–1980), a rock-and-roll hero successful both as a founding member of the Beatles and as a solo artist. Still beloved around the world, Lennon’s music remains an anchor of pop radio and continues to speak for truth and peace

    The stamp design features a photograph of Lennon taken by noted rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen in August 1974 during the photo session for Lennon’s 1974 album Walls and Bridges. For the stamps, the original black-and-white image has been treated in gradations of color.

    The stamp sheet is designed to resemble a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve. One side of the sheet includes the stamps, brief text about Lennon’s legacy, and the image of a sliver of a record seeming to peek out the top of the sleeve. A black-and-white photograph of Lennon seated at his white piano appears on the reverse, along with Lennon’s signature and the Music Icons series logo. Taken by photographer Peter Fordham, the original photograph was used to promote Lennon’s landmark 1971 solo album, Imagine.
