I believe this stamp from Paraguay shows both Steinbeck and "Grapes of Wrath":

Antoine Louis Camille Lemonnier (1844-1913) was a Belgian writer, poet and journalist. He was a member of the Symbolist La Jeune Belgique group, but his best known works are realist. His first work was Salon de Bruxelles (1863), a collection of art criticism. His best known novel is Un Mâle ("A Male," 1881). Here is an image of a semi-postal stamp featuring a portrait of Camille Lemonnier, designed and engraved by Jean De Vos, and issued by Belgium on March 21, 1977 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Belgian French-speaking writers' organization L'Association des écrivains Belges de langue française, created in 1902, Scott No. B957, plus a photo of the writer.

Ah, I like this one. The look in his eyes on the stamp is far looking or seeing while in the photo it is that but overlaid with inward looking also. Makes me want to read some of his stuff and even talk with hm.

Interesting also are the words On a stamp and In a photo, not On a photo. It is as if we are imbuing some soul quality to a photo, like certain peoples who thought (and think) that their soul would be captured in a photograph.
