I'm kinda divided on this one. Following the US Postal Service's announcement of their forthcoming classic industrial design stamp series, Assembly Magazine's Austin Weber is proposing a series dedicated to the assembly line.
The assembly line? Sure, they look cool in photographs and greatly contributed to American industrial prowess, military might, and at least one episode of I Love Lucy, but weren't human-powered assembly lines kind of inhuman and an unsavory means to an end?
In any case, Weber wrote an essay on assembly lines in a 2003 issue of Assembly commemorating their 90th anniversary, and he's pushing for the stamps for 2013, which would mark the assembly line centennial. If you agree with his proposal, you can get on board here.
