How very exciting! I was about to say that it will make for gorgeous posting...but actually they look to be USA stamps...and maybe the'd be a little too lovely to post with anyway.

The stamps are great looking, but this post seems so anticlimactic after your last one! I'll hurry that fabric along so you can another exciting post!

Those are so very striking. Glad to see that they USPS appreciated the lines of the era. I will be forgoing the standard flag for these babies.

Makes a brotha want to pay some bills or break out the fountain pen.

I have been studying Ray Kaiser and have learned that she had a very significant impact on much of what those stamps represent, but was never adequately credited. Ironically, her husband Charles did little to bring credit her way.

There. Even design icons have some dirt.
