Folklore cowboy Pecos Bill and legendary lumberjack Paul Bunyan as well as designs on riverboats and marathon running will adorn U.S. postage stamps next year.

Most of the new stamps will be unveiled Tuesday at a ceremony at the National Postal Museum. Other stamps of local interest will be unveiled in a series of briefings in 11 cities over three days.
