garboIn the wake of China's epic cinematic stamp-fest comes a very small, joint postal venture by the US and Sweden. Acting together, which is sort of nice, the two countries are issuing Greta Garbo stamps, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of her birth. The stamp (the image, as I understand it, will be the same on both Swedish and American stamps) is based on a photo taken of Garbo on the set of As You Desire Me, when she was impossibly young and gorgeous.

It's a good time to be alive, Garbo fans:  along with the whole postal celebration thing, don't forget that our lady is also being recognized by a series on TCM. Additionally, there's Greta Garbo: A Cinematic Legacy, a posh book of photographs and analysis of her films.
