The five lighthouses honored in 2013 are: Portland Head, Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Portsmouth Harbor, New Castle, New Hampshire. Point Judith, Narragansett, Rhode Island. New London Harbor, New London, Connecticut. Boston Harbor, Boston, Massachusetts.
The stamp art for each of the lighthouses is a painting based on contemporary photographs. The New England Coastal Lighthouses Forever stamps were designed by art directors Howard E. Paine of Delaplane, VA, and Greg Breeding of Charlottesville, VA, painted by artist Howard Koslow of Toms River, NJ. In addition to many other stamp projects, Koslow has produced the art for the entire Lighthouses series: the five lighthouses in the 1990 stamp booklet; the Great Lakes Lighthouses stamps issued in 1995; the Southeastern Lighthouses stamps in 2003; the Pacific Lighthouses stamps in 2007; and the Gulf Coast Lighthouses stamps in 2009.
