Pop artist Robert Indiana created the iconic ‘LOVE’ print that is still widely used today for cards, posters and other media. It was originally produced as the 1965 Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The US postal service used it as the basis for a stamp in 1973 and Indiana used the same graphic idea for reproductions that replaced ‘Love’ with the word ‘Hope’ as a fundraiser for Barak Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. This project raised more than $ 1,000,000.
