US Postal Service Shel Silverstein

U.S. Postal Service unveils Shel Silverstein “The Giving Tree”stamp for 2022

    The extraordinarily versatile Shel Silverstein (1930–1999) was one of the 20th century’s most imaginative authors and illustrators. His picture book “The Giving Tree” and his quirky poetry collections are beloved by children everywhere. The stamp art features a version of the illustration of a boy catching an apple that appears on the cover of “The Giving Tree.” Published in 1964, the best-selling tale of selflessness is considered a children’s literature classic. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp.
