The artist who created Hawaii's new statehood stamp is not happy with the finished result.
Herb Kane says the postal service used the wrong typography on the word "Hawai‘i." Instead of using an ‘okina, they made the common mistake of using an apostrophe, where the top of the line is thicker than the bottom. It's subtle but meaningful.
Well I don't really feel good about it because a lot of my friends are Hawaiian or part Hawaiian and they're really into the culture and when they see an apostrophe used when an ‘okina should be used, they're going to blame me for it," said Kane.
Unfortunately, Kane says he's been told by postal officials the stamps have already been printed up. They'll be released August 21st to commemorate 50 years of statehood.
