In 1967, Robert Indiana's "Love" print became known around the world as an anti-war symbol. The print started as a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art (you will see an upside down Christmas tree in the Letter "V"). The Love print eventually was chosen as a U.S. postage stamp.

In 1996, the publisher of American Images approached Indiana with the idea of expanding the Love print into a portfolio of 12 different images, and also to publish Indiana's poems as part of the new set. This print is from this new set.
