Stamp Kookys, all six in one image

All six Stamp Kookys are here on a plate. From left to right, then top to bottom, they are 1994, 2004, 2008, 1985, 2005, 2012.

I have learned a lot about storebought frostings and glazes that I will share in a post in the very near future.




Stamp Kookys, image 3: Michael Osborne’s “I Heart You” Conversation Hearts, 2004

This cookie is an homage to Michael Osborne’s “I Heart You” Conversation Heart design, it was the LOVE stamp for 2004. Osborne also created a LOVE stamp for 2002.


Stamp Kookys, fifth image: Flesher’s “Love Bouquet”, 2005

This cookie is an homage to Vivienne Flesher‘s “Love Bouquet”, the LOVE stamp for 2005. Flesher also designed a 2006 stamp recognizing the Amber Alert.


Stamp Kookys, sixth and final image: Fili’s “Love and Ribbons”, 2012

This cookie is the last in the LOVE stamp Kooky series for now. It is this year’s “Love and Ribbons” by Louise Fili and it was issued earlier this month. Fili is a famous graphic designer who has penned 18 books, many with her fellow designer and husband, Steven Heller. If you go to a big chain bookstore or their website, Fili’s and Heller’s titles typically crowd the shelf and the virtual shelf.

This is the first stamp I saw that I couldn’t wait to see in Kooky form.


Stamp Kookys, fourth image: “All Heart” by Zwolak and Kessler, 2008

This cookie is an homage to the 2008 “All Heart” LOVE stamp by Paul Zwolak and Ethel Kessler.


Stamp Kookys, image 2: Peter Goode’s “Love Rays” 1994


My homage to Peter Goode’s 1994 LOVE stamp, called “Love Rays”.

PS– I think I will try this one again later. I’d like the border to be cleaner.


Stamp Kookys, first image: LOVE 1985

My homage to Corita Kent’s original, used for the US’s LOVE stamp, circa 1985. Google her, you won’t be disappointed.
