Stamps can be such a little work of art, especially when featuring designers and artists such as Charles and Ray Eames. Per Hatch!, "USPS is releasing an Eames stamp on June 17th... As you can see, each sheet has 16 different Eames images on it with the logo enlarged and in the middle. The composition is genius; I love the way they played with the rectangles and squares and how they relate to one another the way Charles and Ray would have done it (IMHO). I’m going to have to keep a sheet just to put in a frame." Not much mail being sent these days with online bill pay, but Hatch! is right—these are keepers anyway. Click here for a larger view.
