A Few of My Favorite Things

This is something I have never thought about: people who design stamps. I love stamps and obviously someone must create each design, but I confess I’ve never given those designers any thought. Until today! Check out this interview with designer Suzanne Kleinwaks. It’s part of a series celebrating two of my favorite things: women’s history and stamps. Another stamp designer who electronically crossed my path today is Paul Rogers. He designed a splendid stamp in honor of the Cherry Blossom Centennial. This stamp commemorates the 100-year-old gifting of 3,020 cherry trees from Tokyo to the city of Washington, D.C. I confidently count cherry trees among my favorite things, too.
