Julia de Burgos ...

On Sept 14, 2010, in a ceremony held in San Juan (in Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the US, located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, east of the Dominican Republic), the United States Postal Service (USPS) honoured Julia de Burgos's (one of Puerto Rico’s most celebrated poets) life and literary work with the issuance of a first class postage stamp, the 26th release in the postal system's Literary Arts series. The stamp's portrait was created by Toronto-based artist Jody Hewgill.

On the card, it shows the sight of San Juan and its port.

Many thanks A.W.Welch for this splendid card ;-)
