American graphic design icon Bradbury Thompson was a prolific stamp designer, but also had a great influence over the United States stamp program. Thompson had been in charge of the popular Love series from the beginning, assigning and working with Robert Indiana on the first issue of 1973 and Mary Faulconer on her all-flower design of 1982. His own stamp in the series, issued in 1984 is an all typographic design featured the word ‘LOVE’ stacked five times, with the V replaced by hearts of different colors of the spectrum.*
