Bonsai Booklet of 20 x Forever us Postage Stamps Model:
With these five Bonsai (ForeverÂ®) stamps, the U.S. Postal ServiceÂ® celebrates the beauty of bonsai. The word bonsai (Japanese for plant in a pot) refers to the art of cultivating plants - usually trees - in trays, pots, or other containers. Favorite bonsai plants include evergreens, maples, and azaleas, but many other trees and shrubs are also suitable.One of the common styles of bonsai is shown on each of these five stamps. The first stamp depicts a Sierra juniper in semi-cascade style, in which the tip projects over the pot rim but does not extend below the base.

1995 PEACH & PEAR #2488a Booklet Pane of 10 x 32 cents US Postage Stamps
In 1995, demand for self-adhesive or "peel and stick" stamps, as they became popularly called, increased dramatically. As a result, production of self-adhesives in 1995 more than tripled the 2.4 billion which were released in 1994. To meet consumer demand, production of the self-adhesive version of the 32-cent Peaches and Pear stamps jumped from 800 million to 1.4 billion! Like the 'Flag Over Porch' self-adhesives released earlier in the year, the 'Peaches and Pear's self-adhesives feature simulated perforation die cuts. In addition to the pane and coil self-adhesive formats, the Peaches and Pears were issued in non-adhesive booklets as attached pair, as are shown here.
