There are 20 stamps in a stamp book. The total fee is the individual stamp’s cost, multiplied by the number of stamps in the book. In this case, the result would be $11.

Sometimes, the place from which you buy stamp books may affect the price. Websites like Amazon and eBay may occasionally offer discounts.

If you’re looking for a certain stamp type, you can always look at the USPS official website. They have all kinds of stamps under categories of themes, shapes, colors, and more. The stamps are available for purchase at their current rate.
