Current and Upcoming Stamp Issues

Correios - Spain: Star Wars:

On May 23rd, the Spanish postal service issued a new souvenir sheet, featuring one stamp, and five connected vignettes. The stamp depicts Darth Vader - the main villain from the Star Wars films, and the vignettes each represent a character from the Star Wars universe. The First movie was released in 1977 by George Lucas, and the series originally planned to be a trilogy, will now have 9 movies directly in the series, along with a whole host of other movies and shows in the form of spin-offs.

The souvenir sheet is very colorful, as the stamp and the vignettes each have their particular color. The Darth Vader stamp is denominated at 5, whereas the vignettes have no denomination. The stamp can be found here in our catalogue, and at Correios Spain.

Bulgaria: The 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Ella Fitzgerald:

In celebration of the 100th anniversary for the birth of Ella Fitzgerald, the Bulgarian postal service has issued this beautiful souvenir sheet. The stamp depicts Ella Fitzgerald singing, and the sheet contains two of the members of her band as well.

Ella Fitzgerald was a widely famous singer from USA, and has been referred to as The First Lady of Song. She stated out performing with the Chick Webb Orchestra, and in 1942 she left the band to pursue a solo career.

Though her solo career is what she became famous for, her collaborations with great singers from the time, have become true classics, such as "Dream a Little Dream of Me".

The sheet was issued on April 28th, and can be found in our catalogue here.
