Commemorative Issue

Love is in the Air

Australia
The heart is quite simply the most iconic love symbol of all. The exchange of heart-shaped Valentines is believed to have gained popularity in Victorian England.

This latest issue of stamps, for special occasions and everyday use, is a fresh and contemporary take on the subject of love and the love-heart form.

Each stamp presents a heart-shaped object, floating in a panorama of blue sky and fluffy white clouds. There is a heart-shaped kite, sky-writing smoke trail, hot-air balloon and cloud.

The stamps convey a sense that love is something limitless, uplifting and exciting; that love is about to happen; that love is in the air.
