Combining artistic vision with a symbol of undying affection, the 2015 Forever Hearts stamps beautifully depict the ancient association between eternal love and the heart. Lacy lettering in the shape of a heart spells out the word Forever on two stamps. One design features red lettering on a white background; the other is reversed, with white lettering on a field of red. Artist Jessica Hische created the lettering that forms the heart, first drawing her design by hand and then finishing the stamp art digitally. The red and white color scheme works well with other colors and adds a timeless feel to the design, which resembles filigree. A religious symbol, a motif in art, an expression of affection or support-today the heart is everywhere, not only at Valentine's Day but also year-round. It signifies romantic love as well as love of people, places, or ideas. In the 1970s, a campaign to increase tourism in New York famously substituted the heart symbol for the word love in its slogan, a trademarked logo that spawned imitations around the world. Scores of businesses and organizations use the heart as part of their logos. Heart designs are carved onto furniture, etched onto jewelry, sewn into quilt patterns, and fashioned into sculpture. In February, the heart is found on everything from cookies to cards to kids' clothes. This listing is for 20 stamps (1 sheet of 20).
