New US Postage Stamp Celebrates Year Of The Dog

2018: Year of the Dog

This year’s addition to the United States Postal Service Lunar New Year-themed stamp series was designed by the late artist Clarence Lee. It is a subtle picture that centers on three elegant, twisting lucky bamboo. A red paper decorated with the Chinese character indicates good fortune, while a dog, rendered as a traditional paper cutout, waves from the upper-left corner.  The Lunar New Year series of 12, which illustrated each of the 12 zodiac animals, was introduced in 1992.
