Ursula K. Le Guin may have passed away three years ago, but she's still making headlines: the US Postal Service is issuing a stamp to honor the beloved author.
In the forever stamp, artist Donato Giancola depicts Le Guin in front of a scene from her novel The Left Hand of Darkness.
According to her Twitter account (now handled by her estate), the stamp is the thirty-third in the USPS’s Literary Arts series and will be released at a date TBD, though you can preview it in the tweet.
Le Guin was a pioneer in sci-fi and fantasy, winning the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy awards multiple times; her best-known novels include the Earthsea series and The Left Hand of Darkness.
