A few months ago the U.S. Postal Service announced the release of a new John Lennon forever stamp. Now the dedication ceremony has been set for September 7th at Namburg Bandshell in NYC.
Designed to look like a 45 record sleeve, the stamp 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." Click the pic above for link to the press release, and the video below for more info.
