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.
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.
This cookie is an homage to the 2008 “All Heart” LOVE stamp by Paul Zwolak and Ethel Kessler.
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.
My homage to Corita Kent’s original, used for the US’s LOVE stamp, circa 1985. Google her, you won’t be disappointed.
