Steve Jobs will appear on a US postage stamp in 2015


Many of his creations reduced the need to send physical mail, but late Apple founder Steve Jobs will still get a fitting tribute from the US Postal Service: his likeness will appear on a postage stamp beginning in 2015, according to a document obtained by The Washington Post. Other deceased icons receiving their own stamps that year include Elvis Presley and famed Tonight Show host Johnny Carson. Since 1957, US postage stamp subjects have been selected by an advisory committee of ordinary citizens, who look for suggestions that are "contemporary, timely, relevant, interesting and educational." Any member of the public can nominate someone to appear on a postage stamp, and the committee reviews all suggestions. Clearly, the late Apple CEO fit the bill.
