    Streamlining a pencil sharpener was a very important achievement as it allowed one to sharpen there pencil while on the run....

    That particular pencil sharpener was one of Loewy's first designs in 1933.

    At least we can say the U.S Postal Service got it right back in 2005 when they released that handsome image of the 1953 Studebaker Starliner stamp.

    I had much the same reaction as everyone here when I heard the stamp was released yesterday. What were they thinking? Before I posted I did a search to see if anyone else had posted about the stamp and found this thread.


    The United States Postal Service will release on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 special stamps commemorating some of the country�s greatest industrial designers � including CMG client Raymond Loewy, whose work included designing the unique look of Air Force One, the Greyhound bus, the Studebaker Avanti and Champion.
    The �Pioneers of American Industrial Design� forever stamps show a variety of objects from 12 influential designers. The Loewy stamp showcases the streamlined pencil sharpener.
    The stamp dedication ceremony will be at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City at 11 a.m. Raymond Loewy�s grandson, Jacque Loewy, will attend on behalf of his late grandfather.

    The Avanti article has the USPS release on the stamps...it seems they selected well known items from the other designers featured (like the IBM Selectric typewriter), which makes it even more puzzeling why they'd select such an obscure Loewy item.

    I don't imagine that they would have any problem with approval or payment to Studebaker.
