A Stamp to Celebrate Cherry Blossoms

Post date: Mar 28, 2012 3:41:59 AM

New on the Digressions page is information about the 24 March 2012 release of a U.S. postage stamp to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the cherry trees in Washington, D.C. On the back is waka (tanka) translation by me and Emiko Miyashita. Also presented are numerous images of the stamp pane, the backing text, first-day-of-issue envelopes, and more.
