What great news! John Ford, one of the great and quintessential American film directors, will be getting his own stamp next year. It’ll be a ‘Forever Stamp,’ which will be good… forever.
The stamp features Ford, pipe in hand, as well as THE iconic image from his most iconic film, The Searchers. It’s a beautiful piece of art. And there’s more great news: Ford is just one of the directors being honored next year with stamps. I can’t wait to see who else makes it. And whether the post office still exists in 2012.
