Air Mail

I picked up these stylish stamps at a local flea market last spring. I love the graphic simplicity of the design. I don't collect stamps, but always enjoy picking mine out at the post office! With minimal research I was able to find a fabulous pictorial history of the U.S. Air Mail stamp on Wikipedia covering stamps as early as 1918. Some samples from the 50s and 60s are below.
