Science & Technology

From tiny transistors to the spacecraft that probe the outer reaches of our solar system, contributions to science and technology are a regular part of the U.S. stamp program. The illustrators who create these stamps succeed at the difficult task of inventing eye-pleasing designs from subjects that other artists might dismiss as cold and mechanical. These examples reveal one of the formulas for their success: To depict science in art, depict science as art.
