Botanical artist and printmaker Bobbi Angell shared with me that US Postal Service’s new “Forever” stamp features the art of Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717). Merian was a dedicated independent scholar who made significant contributions to biology and the not-yet-established field of ecology. Her line drawing of a rose is featured on the Vintage Rose stamp.
