(USPS/CNN) – The U.S. Postal Service unveiled its newest literary arts stamp Monday.

The stamp honors author Ralph Ellison, best known for his 1952 novel Invisible Man.

The book shed light on the African American experience and set a new standard for American novelists at the time.

The stamp shows a photo of the author and the background shows a Harlem street at twilight.
