Denmark, Sweden, France and to some extent Austria & Canada ( the odd
high value definitive) still issue engraved stamps but many are
now combination printings meaning usually 1 colour engraving
and multicolour offset or photogravure.
France (and for Monaco) still issues multicolour engraved stamps.

Anyone know who the engraver was on this Greek royal wedding stamp?

Anthony, I'm not 100% certain but it was probably engraved by
A. Tassos who was not only an engraver but also designer and
well known painter.

Here are the other 2 values from the set.

Here is a stamp announcement from the Greek Post Office which notes that the engraver A. Tassos was the designer for these
litho/offset stamps.

Many thanks Litho. These are reminiscent of some Monaco issues of the period.

Spain issued this 15 value set in 1962, depicting the Mysteries of the Rosary using
paintings by famous Spanish painters including Bartolomé Esteban Murillo and El Greco.

These bi coloured stamps are typical for Spanish stamps of that time.
I don't have the engraver's name. Perhaps nethryk could help out there.

Egypt - International Geographical Congress (1925)

Printed by Offset-Litho by the Survey Department of Cairo. Paper was supplied by Harrisons & Sons.

The postage stamps depict God Thoth carving the name of King Fuad (father of the famous King Farouk) ...




Cheers

lithograving - More terrific images! Your beautiful 15-stamp Misterios del Santísimo Rosario set was the work of the Spanish master engraver Alfonso López Sánchez Toda, with some assistance by his brother, José Luis López Sánchez Toda. - nethryk

Thanks again nethryk, so it was the Toda brothers.

My old 1968 Michel Europa lists the engravers only for some issues
up to 1961. Nothing after that date.
The designers are also listed sporadically.
Not what one would expect from that famous German efficiency.

Anthony, thanks for the link to the Printers.

I had it before but for some reason it disappeared from my
Bookmarks.
