Unlike their French predecessors in the early 1960-ies where they had up to 6 colours - 3 direct recess and 3 indirect recess - the Prag Printers NEVER used indirect recess!

modernstamps - http://goscf.com/t/61374#530293 - Kamil Lhotįk (1912-1990) was enchanted with the world of the pioneers in modern technology at the turn of the 20th century, especially vehicles, from bicycles and baloons to motorcycles, cars, and aircraft. He liked to depict such vehicles on the outskirts of cities, where wooden palings, sheds, and mysterious structures rising against the blue skies could be seen amid green grass and roads made of broken stones leading to new discoveries. A life-long keen cyclist and motocyclist, he said he had owned 20 different motorcycles, one after another, between 1930 and 1975, when he designed the stamps.

For more details, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamil_Lhot%C3%A1k
and Google his pictures.

Was sorting through some Czech stamps this evening and found these two from the mid 1980's dedicated to two engravers. Anybody know if there are more? Are there examples from other countries?
