The Gulf Coast Lighthouses stamps are the fifth issuance in the popular Lighthouses series, which began in 1990. The series demonstrates the creative reach of a long-term collaboration between illustrator and art director. It also reflects some of the big changes in stamp manufacturing over the past two decades. Enjoy all 25 designs in the series.
All five issuances in the Lighthouses series are the product of the same creative team: artist Howard Koslow and Art Director Howard Paine. An art director at the National Geographic Society for more than 30 years and a former member of the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, Paine has supervised the design of more than 400 U.S. postage stamps.
