History of U.S. Postage from Kathryn Davenel on Vimeo.

Jamie recently sent along two philatelitc links of note. The first is fun animation by Kathryn Davenel  and the second is the "big reveal" going on at Beyond the Perf -- they are debuting a new 2012 stamp every day for the next week or so. How great that USPS tapped Louise Fili to design the new love ribbons stamp (you can learn about the history of love stamps here). Fili's work has always been such an inspiration. Above, a few of my favorite logos that she's designed. It's enlightening to read about before and after redesigns, like the one for Good Housekeeping. I just ordered her history of "Scripts" that came out in May. Can't wait to share! & thanks Jamie!
