Forsake email for a little: Eames postage stamps are available

When Charles Eames died in 1978, first-class U.S. domestic postage was .15¢. 3 years later, when Ray followed, it was up to .18¢.

On June 17, 2008, in Santa Monica, California, the Postal Service™ issued 42-cent
Charles and Ray Eames stamps in a commemorative sheet featuring 16 different designs.

Honoring the husband-and-wife design team of Charles and Ray Eames, this commemorative sheet of 16 stamps was designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, and represents the breadth of their extraordinary body of creative work, which includes architecture, furniture, film and exhibits.

Buy them at your P.O. or here. There's also lots to see at the Eames Gallery website. – GF

it is wrong to use the decimal w/ a cent sign because that indicates it is a portion of a cent. U must use either a cent sign xor a decimal point.
