About Stamp

About Stamp Series

On April 20, 2017, in Albuquerque, NM, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Delicioso stamps (Forever® priced at 49 cents), in 6 designs, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) booklet of 20 stamps. The stamps will go on sale nationwide April 20, 2017.

With the release of the new Delicioso Forever stamps, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates the influence of Central and South American, Mexican, and Caribbean foods and flavors on American cuisine. This booklet of 20 stamps features six dishes from a variety of Latin American culinary traditions that have found new life and variations in the United States. Each stamp showcases a bright and playful illustration of one of the following dishes: tamales, flan, sancocho, empanadas, chile relleno, and ceviche. The names of the six dishes appear in a festive font above each mouthwatering image. Artist John Parra designed the stamp artwork under the direction of Antonio Alcalá.
