So cool ! No Solar – No tidal – No Bio fuel – No wind – how different it was then.. but re design…

But so optimistic and simple in design though – love them !

Kind of reminds me of a more complex version of these Earth Science stamps:

I like the designs, but is electricity really an energy source? Aren’t oil, coal and natural gas used to make electricity? Just a thought. I do like the stamps though.

I really dig that the bottom of the stamps have the little illustrative allusion to how that energy source is found in the earth (except for electricity, to which I agree with Jeremiah).

I love how the stamps combine modern and oldschool images. Totally have you bookmarked!

Whoa! I have that Electricity stamp in my collection! Sweet!!
