Before I bought these stamps, I only knew that Eames was a famous dude who designed famous chairs.
I did not realize that the Eames were a man/wife couple who designed all kinds of things.
According to the Wikipedia entry,
"Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912–1988) Eames (pronounced /ˈiːmz/) were American designers, married in 1941, who worked and made major contributions in many fields of design including industrial design, furniture design, art, graphic design, film and architecture."
So this is the beauty of stamps - they are miniature works of art that open our minds to new worlds.
