Powers of 42

Went to the post office today to buy some new 42 cent stamps and was delighted to see a brand new set of Charles and Ray Eames commemoratives.

The Eames were pioneering American designers, a married couple who are best known for their furniture design and who also made major contributions in industrial design, art, graphic design, film and architecture. Several Eames Chairs are housed in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and their landmark film Powers of Ten is still widely shown around the world in design schools, film festivals and math classes.

Pick up a sheet at your local post office, or on line right here.
