US #3496 (34c) Love Issue self-adhesive booklet single on First Day Ceremony Program, Tucson, AZ Jan 19, 2001 slogan hand cancel ties stamp to inside page, unaddressed.

reads:

“A person who can write a long letter with ease,” remarked Jane Austin in Pride and Prejudice, “cannot write ill.” With the issuance of this first-class Love stamp, the U.S. Postal Service pays tribute to the timelessness of love letters—and the enduring and romantic feelings they symbolize.

Featuring correspondence between Abigail Smith and John Adams during their courtship, this beautiful stamp underscores the lasting nature of profound sentiments expressed in writing. This stamp includes an excerpt of a letter from Adams to Smith on April 20, 1763. The two were married in 1764, more than thirty years before Mr. and Mrs. Adams would become President and First Lady of the United States.

This stamp, featuring a photograph by Renee Comet, was designed by Lisa Catalone, Ethel Kessler served as art director.
