New US stamps coming soon

I just came across a post on Felt & Wire about these new colo(u)rful US stamps (shown above) that will be issued soon. I’m curious to know your thoughts. Do you find these pleasing? Do they seem like they represent one, two, five and ten dollars of value? Check out these glorious Canadian stamps (below) that are the same values. I had to ask specifically about them at the post office as the staff there typically default to putting those big ugly metered stickers on packages instead of pulling out these gorgeous little works of art. I was also pleased to see that these Canadian stamps are the “old-fashioned” ones that require moistening in order to adhere them. Don’t see those too often anymore.
