Notre-Dame du Haut Postage Stamp

Better known as Ronchamp (the French town in which it's located), this little chapel is one of Le Corbusier's masterpieces. And this weekend, out shopping, we stumbled across a postage stamp of the work. We were delighted:

Issued in 1965, the stamp commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the chapel, which was completed in 1955. Just another example of the love and appreciation for design found abroad. We would love to see more art and architecture on US bills and stamps. How about you?
