New Stamp Features Southwest Kansas Landscape
10/01/2012

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new postage stamp features a satellite view of irrigated Kansas crops.

 

The new stamp is in the Forever series and scheduled to be released Monday. The sheet of 15 first-class stamps will be sold for $6.75.

 

The Wichita Eagle reports that the geometric shapes on the Kansas stamp are fields of wheat, alfalfa, corn and soybeans watered by center-pivot irrigation. The picture is one of 15 Forever stamps called Earthscapes, which are stamps with aerial shots of natural, agricultural and urban subjects in the U.S.

 

Other stamps in the series include a skyscraper, a highway interchange, the Mount Saint Helens volcanic crater and log rafts on their way to a saw mill.

 

NASA's Landsat 7 satellite took the Kansas photo near Garden City in 2011.
