New stamps by the U.S. Postal Service honor Japanese American sculptor Ruth Asawa. Courtesy

The new Ruth Asawa stamps at the U.S. Postal Service make me want to find a pen pal. The pane includes 20 stamps, with two each of 10 designs of her gorgeous wire sculptures. The Japanese American sculptor, arts activist and educator lived from 1926-2013, and produced art over the course of more than half a century.
