New Lunar New Year of the Rabbit stamp to be released today

The U.S. Postal Service will celebrate its new Lunar New Year stamp in San Francisco today to mark the Year of the Rabbit and its annual stamp series.

The design is reflective of the decorative masks often used in Lunar New Year parades and during lion and dragon dance performances.

Designed by art director Antonio Alcalá and Camille Chew, it includes a three-dimensional mask depicting a rabbit. The postal service describes it as a “contemporary take on the long tradition of paper-cut folk art crafts.”

Mayor London Breed will join with Derek Kan of the US Postal Board of Governors, State Treasurer Fiona Ma and Jan Xu, director of the Asian Art Museum for the festivities.

The stamp is the fourth in the latest Lunar New Year series. Lunar New Year begins January 22 and ends February 9th.

The stamps may be purchased at local post offices and online.
