Music stars honoured on French and US postage stamps


The US and French postal services have joined forces in order to pay tribute to the music legends Edith Piaf and Miles Davis.

The United States Postal Service and La Poste of France have released joint commemorative stamps to honour the careers of the two accomplished musicians.

It is only the second time the two countries have released postage stamps together, with the set to be used on both sides of the Atlantic.
