Always books. Never boring.

The United States Postal Service announced that it will be issuing an Ursula K. Le Guin stamp that will go on sale nationwide on July 27, 2021. Ursula K.

With art by Donato Giancola and art direction from Antonio Alcalá, this is the 33rd stamp in the USPS Literary Arts series. The stamp features a portrait of the author and a scene from The Left Hand of Darkness. The stamp will be issued in Portland, Oregon, the city Le Guin called home, where a First-Day-of-Issue Dedication Ceremony will be held.
