HAWAIIAN RAIN FOREST 2010

 

Over the course of twelve years, John produced a series of stamp sets for the U.S. Postal Service illustrating the flora and fauna of a dozen different U.S. geographical regions. The final set in this series is a depiction of The Hawaiian Rainforest; John and Kathie's own "backyard".
