Ogden Nash

A stamp honoring poet Ogden Nash on the centennial of his birth is the 18th stamp in the Literary Arts series. A gentle satirist, Nash poked fun at human foibles without cynicism. He wrote on many subjects, but all of his poems expressed his wry wit and demonstrated his playfulness with language. Award-winning artist Michael J. Deas based his portrait of Nash on a circa 1952 black-and-white photograph taken by Kay Bell Reynal. The background of the stamp consists of six poems by Nash: "The Turtle," "The Cow," "Crossing the Border," "The Kitten," "Limerick One" and "The Camel."
