To celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth, Edgar Allan Poe gets…a postage stamp.
From Happy News:
“The stamp portrait of Edgar Allan Poe is by award-winning artist Michael J. Deas of New Orleans, whose research over the years has made him well acquainted with Poe’s appearance. In 1989, Deas published The Portraits and Daguerreotypes of Edgar Allan Poe, a comprehensive collection of images featuring authentic likenesses as well as derivative portraits.
The dedication ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. on Jan. 16, at the Library of Virginia in Richmond at 800 E. Broad St. ”
WHAT. Book me tickets to Virginia. What presidential inauguration?
