Hello.
For my taste, this is one of his best works, along with his mother's portrait, which I don't have yet.
Regards.

Czeslaw Slania (22 October 1921 Czeladz - 17 March 2005 Kraków) - 100 Years

Czeslaw Slania was a Polish-born postage stamp and banknote engraver, living in Sweden from 1956. He was the most skilled and prolific of all stamp engravers, with over 1000 stamps to his credit.

Slania was born in Czeladz; near Katowice, Poland. During the Second World War he forged money and documents for the Polish resistance. He entered the Kraków School of Fine Arts, a renowned graphics arts centre, in 1945. While still a student, S#322;ania was employed by the Polish Stamp Printing Works, where he learned to engrave in steel. His first stamp was issued in Poland in 1951. In 1956, Slania moved to Sweden, where he began employment with the Swedish postal authorities in 1959. He produced stamps for Sweden and 30 other countries. His work was of such recognized quality and detail that he is one of the very few "household names" among philatelists, and some specialize in collecting his work.

To commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Czeslaw Slania, Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands issued on August 12, 2021 a souvenir sheet each, featuring his portrait, engraved by Martin Mörck. The three SS's were issued in a special folder contains information about Slania:
