The U.S. Postal Service has announced two new stamp subjects for 2020, including a stamp set celebrating the life and work of Japanese American artist Ruth Asawa.

The USPS revealed the design of a stamped envelope showing the American flag.

A statement read: "This stamped envelope features a graphic design of the flag that evokes a rich sense of history even as it presents a recognizable icon in a fresh, contemporary way. Kit Hinrichs created the artwork for this stamped envelope. Ethel Kessler served as art director."

The designs for a ten-stamp set honouring pioneering Japanese American artist Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) has also been revealed.
