According to Linn’s Stamp News, the Janis Joplin stamp is expected to be issued in August and was first unveiled in a recent issue of the USPS USA Philatelic catalog for stamp collectors.
“Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was a groundbreaking singer whose powerful, bluesy voice propelled her to the pinnacle of rock stardom. An icon of the 1960s, she was known for her uninhibited and soulful performances. Joplin is now recognized as one of the greatest rock singers of all time, as well as a pioneer who paved the way for other women in rock music,” reads a description that accompanies each sheet of 16 stamps.
