Description: There's nothing quite like the thrill of stamp collecting! Long held in esteem as one of the world's most popular hobbies, with 20 million collectors in the United States alone, stamp collecting opens doors to exciting worlds of history, politics, science, culture, sports, and much more. Appealing to anyone from ages 9 to 90, the hobby of philately gets a stamp of approval as an affordable and fascinating pastime that's easy, educational, and fun!

Sure to be hailed as a publishing milestone, this dazzling giftbook reveals the rich and powerful history of the United States Postal Service and the everyday people behind the scenes who strove to make it the institution it is today. Elegantly depicted through a series of rarely seen photographs, An American Postal Portrait is an impressive photojournalistic retrospective that equally traces U.S. cultural and technological advances, from the rise of mail delivery via railroads to the sophisticated sorting machines automating the processing of mail today. Captivating and unforgettable, this is a well deserved tribute to our nation's foremost communications institution and the enduring American spirit.
