Gulf Coast Lighthouses
The U.S. Postal Service continues its popular series of lighthouse stamps by artist Howard Koslow with the 2009 issuance of five Gulf Coast Lighthouses stamps: Matagorda Island, Sabine Pass, Biloxi, Sand Island, and Fort Jefferson. Each stamp features an original acrylic painting by Koslow based on recent photographs of the lighthouses.
Koslow also painted the five Pacific Lighthouses stamps issued in 2007, as well as the five stamps in the 1990 Lighthouses booklet, the Great Lakes Lighthouses stamps issued in 1995, and the 2003 Southeastern Lighthouses stamps.
