Just in time for Valentine's Day, Michael Osborne of San Francisco's Michael Osborne Design (www.modsf.com) has fashioned his second United States Postal Service "Love" stamp. The first, in 2002, spelled the word in a Pop Art fashion; this one is all candy hearts, and if it looks good enough to eat, it is. The New England Confectionery Company (see www.necco.com) has manufactured a special run of the sweet hearts featuring the saccharine sentiment seen on the stamp. Here's what Osborne had to say about his first stamp, in the March 2003 Creativity: "What a hoot. What an amazing, surreal experience for a graphic designer! At the first day of issue, which is a very big deal for the USPS and philatelists alike, I totally felt like I was having my Warhol 15 minutes. Hell, I had a whole day." And now he gets to have his heart and eat it, too.
