On April 22, 1999 in New York, NY the USPS honored Russian-born author and social critic Ayn Rand as the subject of the 16th addition to the long-running Literary Arts series. The skyscrapers featured in the stamp's design bring to mind the fictional architect Howard Roark from her novel "The Fountainhead" (1943). Rand's other popular novels include "We the Living" (1936), "Anthem" (1938), and "Atlas Shrugged" (1957). Her writing champions the ideals of personal freedom and the power of the individual. Ayn Rand was born on February 2, 19-5 and died on March 6, 1982 at the age of 77. Rand was also a noted stamp collector.
