Contents: YS1991 (2532-38, 2545-52, 2553-58, 2560-80, 82-85) 46 Stamps Now you can get all 46 Commemorative single stamps issued in 1991 with one convenient, money-saving order.

Stamp Set Commemorates:

U.S./Switzerland Joint Issue – Switzerland is the oldest operating republic in the world.  The stamp is the first U.S. non-airmail commemorative to carry a 50¢ rate since the Trans-Mississippi Series of 1898.

Savings Bonds – The impressive design that commemorates the 50th anniversary of U.S. Savings Bonds intentionally resembles the patriotic posters of the World War II era.  Americans bought more than $54 billion worth of bonds during World War II.

William Saroyan – American author William Saroyan came to fame in 1934 with his short story, “The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze.”  Though he wrote during the cynicism of the Great Depression, Saroyan managed to keep his stories light-hearted and optimistic.

Cole Porter – Cole Porter composed some of America’s favorite musical comedies — including “Kiss Me Kate,” “Anything Goes,” and “Can-Can.”  The Porter stamp is the twelfth in the Performing Arts Series.

Olympics – The Olympic Field and Track stamps are the first computer-designed U.S. stamps.  They feature male and female athletes competing in the pole vault, discus, javelin, hurdles, and sprint.  Illustrator Joni Carter, who the Postal Service describes as “a pioneer in the field of computer-designed art,” designed and illustrated the stamps with an IBM computer and advanced multimedia technology.

District of Columbia Bicentennial – Washington, D.C., was chosen as the site of our national capital because it was very nearly the geographic center of America’s thirteen states.  Pierre L’Enfant, a French-born engineer who had fought with the Americans during the Revolution, planned the city.

Comedians – Millions on the big screen and television have seen Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello, as well as Benny and Bergen.   Fanny Brice was one of the performers in the famous Ziegfeld Follies and was the main character of the biographical movie “Funny Girl.”  Postal rules and regulations fell by the wayside for these booklet stamps.  Not only is the designer’s name, famous caricaturist Albert Hirschfeld, prominently displayed on the cover of the booklet, but also the rule against secret marks in stamp artwork was waived for him.  He was allowed to continue his practice of incorporating his daughter’s name, “Nina,” somewhere in each of his drawings.
