WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Postal Service today announced additions to its 2021 stamp program. One of the new stamps featured is the North American river otter.
Otters in Snow
This booklet of 20 stamps features four scenes of the alert and playful North American river otter reveling in winter's white landscape.
The original illustrations were rendered in pen and ink, with watercolor in shades of brown for the otters, using black for facial features and crosshatching. The wintry background is white, with blue water, light blue and violet shadows, and black crosshatching.
Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps with artwork from illustrator John Burgoyne.
Customers may purchase stamps and other philatelic products through the Postal Store at usps.com/shop, by calling (844) 737-7826, by mail through USA Philatelic, or at Post Office locations nationwide.
The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
