Charles & Ray Eames Designers Issue

On June 17, 2008, in Santa Monica, California, the Postal Service issued a pane of 42-cent stamps honoring Charles and Ray Eames in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) commemorative sheet of sixteen.

Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, designed the stamps. Honoring the husband-and-wife design team Charles and Ray Eames, this commemorative sheet of sixteen stamps represents the breadth of their extraordinary body of creative work, which includes architecture, furniture, film, and exhibits.
