Janis Joplin Stamp Artwork Unveiled

Janis Joplin Stamp Artwork Unveiled
A stamp of the rock singer is due out later this summer



http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/janis-joplin-stamp-artwork-unveiled-20140630

Earlier this year, Rolling Stone reported on a series of musical stamps coming out this year that took years of planning to come to fruition. Now that the Jimi Hendrix stamp has been officially released as the first offering of the United States Postal Service's Music Icons series, the agency has unveiled the official stamp for the series' next star Janis Joplin.

According to Linn's Stamp News, the stamp will be released this August and will feature the singer smiling and wearing shades surrounded by a psychedelic background and lettering evoking the popular font of the Sixties.

A biographical description on the sheet of 16 stamps says: "Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was a groundbreaking singer whose powerful, bluesy voice propelled her to the pinnacle of rock stardom. An icon of the 1960s, she was known for her uninhibited and soulful performances. Joplin is now recognized as one of the greatest rock singers of all time, as well as a pioneer who paved the way for other women in rock music."

Joplin, who would have turned 71 this year, and Hendrix are the latest subjects to join the Music Icons series, which had previously honored Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Tejano songstress Lydia Mendoza in 2012.

3. Yep, that has always been one of my favorite shots of her.

I'd say this is as good as the Hendrix stamp that came out a few months ago.

17. There is absolutely nothing better than hearing Janice on vinyl

I have three of her original albums, and I wouldn't take a million dollars for them.

Never anyone like her before; no one like her since. Beyond remarkable. And her parents were ashamed of her....

14. My favorite Janis quote " the fuckers, we'll show them."

That was her response backstage, when we told her the management wouldn't let us announce a love-in that was scheduled for the next day, the next day 10,000 showed up, love ya Janis.
