Global Forever Stamp

The United States Postal Service (USPS) recently released the global forever stamp. Currently, the value is $1.10, but it will take the current value of one ounce of international mail. It's the first circular stamp issued by the postal service. Right now, I love the design, but I am sure that after six months or so, it will grow tiresome. I wish there were multiple designs for international postage!

The USPS describes the design as follows:
The stamp showcases the beauty of planet Earth with an artistic rendering — a composite of images created from satellite and 3D computer technology data. In this image, the Atlantic Ocean is flanked by North and South America, Africa and parts of Europe. Art director William J. Gicker selected this depiction of Earth by Italian artist Leonello Calvetti. Greg Breeding designed the stamp.
