The year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the popular Love stamps, and we are delighted today to reveal the latest in the series: Sealed With Love.
Artist Louise Fili has always been fascinated by the graphic quality of wax seals. “They are elegant and romantic,” she explains. Red, the color most often associated with romantic love, was the obvious color choice for the seal. But Fili knew that a seal by itself wouldn’t work as a stamp design; it needed to be grounded on something.
Fili used subtle shadows to indicate the back of an envelope, evoking the romance of a bygone era. “I was happy to be able to actually reference the concept of letter writing for the design of this stamp,” she says. So are we!
The Sealed With Love stamp will be released in early 2013. An official release date has not yet been set, but the stamps are currently available for pre-order.
