In re Susan Sweeney’s and Alexey Sklayarenko’s recent messages re a (US)
VN stamp:

Some years ago I too, as quondam prez of the VN Society,
contacted the US Post Office about this and was eventually informed that
some advisory committee had rejected the proposal.
I suspect that LOLITA (the movie?) was the extent of their knowledge of
Nabokov. My wife just came home from a visit to Post Office with blocks of
stamps depicting those cultural immortals Jimi Hendrix and Johnny
Cash---both favorites of ours, but really now....
