Beautiful images, Nitro!

I see that you're hosting these -- would it be correct to assume that they're your scans? If so, great job! What software and settings do you use? They're beautiful.

Wonderful, Nethryk! I know this is not your usual milieu -- engraved stamps -- but thanks for thinking of this lithographed stamp!

Also, special thanks to Alexey, Kuhli, and Rod222 for your great contributions!

Philatarium - Thanks! Lo and behold, I found another engraved one for you: Rasmus Storm Josva Berthel Berthelsen (1827-1901) was a Greenlandic teacher, poet, composer and editor. Here is an image of a stamp depicting Rasmus Berthelsen with Inuit students in a library, designed by Greenlandic artist Jens Chrisitan Rosing, engraved by Arne Kühlmann, and issued by Greenland on May 29, 1980 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of public libraries, Scott No. 134, Facit No. 123.

What an inspiring display of stamps! As a retired senior librarian, libraries are near and dear to my heart. Books and libraries are vital to any society and culture. These stamps make me want to look for more to add and perhaps consider a topical collection. Once again, collecting stamps is so cool!
Thanks everyone for sharing all these great scans.
I'm off to check my collection for the above and see if I have any to add.
