Congratulations to music photographer Bob Gruen: one of his portraits of John Lennon has been chosen as a postage stamp.
The P.O. says, "The stamp design features a photograph of Lennon taken by noted rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen in August 1974 during the photo session for Lennon's 1974 album Walls and Bridges. For the stamps, the original black-and-white image has been treated in gradations of color."
