Here's an image of a typographed definitive stamp depicting a portrait of Alexander I (1888-1934), the first king of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1929–34) as well as the last king of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (1921–29), designed and engraved by D. Wagner (his name is printed in Cyrillic in the foot), and issued by Yugoslavia in 1926, Scott No. 42.

I guess I have quite a few typographed stamps, since I have a lot of used CCCP stamps like the ones posted above.

Really like those España Goya stamps. Really good designs. And very engraved-like.

That first stamp is of a character from the poet/dramaturg (theatre writer) Gil Vicente's stories.

"Auto" here, refers to Story.
Vaqueiro, meaning Cowboy, or shepherd in this case. Of sheep or cows, etc.

I bought some used Ceres last year. Curiosity got to me and they're pretty interesting. Didn't expect them to be so small though.

Jules-Jacques Puyplat (1843-1915) was a French engraver and illustrator, working primarily for popular newspapers of the day, including Le Musée universel, Le Magasin pittoresque, and Le Monde illustré. Puyplat also engraved a number of stamps, printed by typography, and issued for use in (former) French colonies. Here are images of several of his works, plus an engraving he did of a Japanese porcelain plate.

rod222 - Nice Argentina stamps, but your post should be relocated to lithograving's thread entitled "Same design ; different print process or printer." The process used to print the second stamp in your post, lithogravure, is not at all the same thing as typography, the subject of this thread. - nethryk
