Gabriel-Antoine Barlangue (1874-1956) designed and engraved recess and typographic stamps issued by France between 1929 and 1953.
He also worked on various stamps of French colonies & other countries over the years.

Barlangue's first steel engraved stamp was issued in 1937 to honour Jean Mermoz, French aviator who disappeared at sea in 1936

Many years ago, I found a "Back to front" "N" in the name of Barlangue. (Caen Cathedral)

Here was a response from Mr. Blair Stannard (Canada)
PS: Links will probably be "dead"
------------------------------------------------------------------
Rodney:

No sign of a funny N in Barlangue's earlier stamp of Dunkerque.

However, Gabriel-Antoine Barlangue, born in Villeneuve sur Lot,
designed and/or engraved more than 150 stamps (France and colonies)
from 1929 to 1953. (eg Comoros Scott #40) and Petain Issue (Oceania,
Somali Coast [Design])

So here's a research project for you to find other 'funny' signatures.
As a starter here are his French stamps:

Bonne Chance.

Balangue's first attributed stamp, was 1929 Joan of Arc.
Unsure what contribution he had, presume design.

His resume.

rod222, thanks for all the info regarding Barlangue.
Yes he was the designer for the Jeanne d´Arc stamp.
And he engraved the typography Paris Exposition set.
But the first steel engraved stamp by him was the Jean Mermoz,
which for some reason does not show in your print screen cut out.

It is here though http://www.phil-ouest.com/Timbres.p...re=DateVente br /
