For a long time, our (U.S.) stamps were a lot like our money, monochromatic, often difficult to tell apart at a glance, and frankly, a little boring at times. In the last twenty five years or so, all that has changed. Now, just like stamps in most other countries, colorful, sometimes even beautiful US stamps abound. You can even see famous (and not so famous) art celebrated on US postage stamps. Which brings us to the stamps shown here; five U.S. postage stamps that celebrate the art of bonsai. Each one a work of art in itself. They’re not out yet, but you can look for them sometime in 2012.
