The late actor who portrayed Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird will be portrayed on a postage stamp being issued April 29.

The stamp will feature a still photograph of Gregory Peck from the 1962 film, based on the novel by Harper Lee, according to the New York Times Arts Beat blog, the Beverly Hills Courier and a press release.

The ABA House of Delegates passed a resolution in August honoring the film for “the positive role that the book has played in the lives of lawyers, their families and the American public.”
