Load up on the Eames stamps available beginning today

The Eames stamps are available in the post offices today. My husband has always wanted one of those $4000 lounge chairs — now I can get him one for 41 cents. From the U.S.P.S. news release:

In recognition of their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design, manufacturing and photographic arts, designers Charles and Ray Eames are being honored with a pane of 16 stamps designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC.

If you’ve ever sat in a stackable molded chair, you’ve experienced their creativity. Perhaps best known for their furniture, the Eameses were husband and wife as well as design partners.

Their extraordinary body of creative work — which reflected the nation’s youthful and inventive outlook after World War II — also included architecture, films and exhibits. Without abandoning tradition, Charles and Ray Eames used new materials and technology to create high-quality products that addressed everyday problems and made modern design available to the American public.

    These would look great as a sheet in a frame. I’ve got some other stamp sets framed that are really nice, and inexpensive pieces of art. You just need to hang them in a spot where they can be viewed up close, and not get “lost” on a big wall.
