Museum offers book on exhibit

Hawai'i's 'stamp guy' turned into cult hero

Advertiser Staff

"Pushing the Envelope: The Art of the Postage Stamp" is a display of 155 of the more than 3,000 works in the U.S. Postal Service’s art collection now on exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass.

Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, museum curator of illustration art, was the person who selected Honolulu designer Clarence Lee’s ink on acetate painting of the Year of the Dragon stamp design for inclusion in the exhibition.

Plunkett says the stamp exhibition has been so popular that there’s talk of taking it on the road after the museum show closes on May 28. Meanwhile, those who would like to look at the stamps on display can order the museum’s $9.95, 50-page book. The book not only presents a history of America’s postage stamps, but includes color photos of each stamp in the exhibit. For information, visit or call 1-800-742-9450.
