lithograving - Excellent. Here are images of a couple of the USA stamps that Yves Baril engraved during the 1990s.

- nethryk

João Rodrigues Cabrilho (Spanish: Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo), Portuguese explorer (c.1499 - 1543) who worked on behalf of Spain, designed by American pin-up artist Ren Wicks (1911-1998), and issued on September 8, 1992, Scott No. 2704. Lots of lithography on this one, but Baril's engraving still shines through.


Dr. Allison Davis (1902-83), American anthropologist and educator, designed by Chris Calle, and issued on February 1, 1994, Scott No. 2816.

nethryk - I had no idea that Yves Baril engraved those 2
US stamps. I'm curious,where do you get all your info
regarding the engravers of US stamps?
I borrowed the 2008 Scott Specialized from the library
but it does not list the engravers.
It does say that the Cabrillo stamp Sc 2704 was printed by The Press
and J.W. Fergusson & Sons for Stamp Ventures and the Davis Sc 2816
printed by Stamp Ventures.
So, Baril moonlighted for these companies while he was still the chief
engraver for Canadian Bank Note Co.

lithograving - A very attractive set! I especially like St. Christopher carrying the Christ Child (#833). Moreover, I really like the whole subtopic of sculpture on engraved stamps.

Scott US Specialized is pretty good as far as it goes, and it does an excellent job of listing stamp designers; but my workhorse reference book for engraving and production details about USA stamps is Linn's World Stamp Almanac, Millennium (6th) Edition, published in 2000. In fact, Linn's has published a number of good books about USA stamps, particularly those written by USA stamp expert Gary Griffith. And yes, I guess old Yves allowed himself a few cross-border "flings" before his retirement in 1996. - nethryk

That Linn's World Stamp Almanac sounds like it
has a wealth of info.

You would figure that a so called Specialized catalogue
like Scott should have included the engravers.

Jules Piel (1882-1978), winner of the Grand Prix de Rome, engraved more than 150 stamps for France, plus scores of others for the French community and other Francophone countries. Here are images of some stamps that demonstrate Piel's design and engraving skills in depictions of sculptures of children.

This semi-postal stamp was designed after a 1777 bust of young Alexandre Brongniart by French neoclassical sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828), and issued by France on February 8, 1952, Scott No. B255, Y&T No. 876.



This stamp was designed after "L'Enfant à l'Aiglon" (Child with a young eagle), a bronze Roman-era statue that was unearthed in 1906 in Tazoult/Lambèse, Algeria, and issued for use in Algeria on February 8, 1952, Scott No 242.



This set of four semi-postal stamps was designed after sculptures in the "Fountain of the Seasons" (1739–45) in the rue de Grenelle, Paris, by French sculptor Edmé Bouchardon (1698-1762), and issued by France issued on December 19, 1949, Scott Nos. B244-47, Y&T Nos. 859-62.

In my opinion this is one of Yves Baril's best work. The face is so
very detailed, a lot of work must have gone into this.

George Vanier, Governor-General.

One of the USA's top vignette engravers from the late 1940s though the early 1960s was Richard M. Bower. In two parts, here are images of a bevy of "Bower beauties" that demonstrate the depth and range of his talent.

Previously we've seen on these pages works of prolific
engravers who worked on dozens, hundreds and the master
Slania of course who engraved over 1000 stamps.

Here is one from Inga-Karin Eriksson who only engraved this stamp but has designed 60 Swedish Stamps over the years.



From Sweden Post Stamp Bulletin

Quote:
Stamp designer:
Inga-Karin Eriksson
Inga-Karin Eriksson's stamps as
well as her method of depicting
different motifs are held in high
esteem. Precise and detailed, her
pictures contain wonderful opportunities
for the viewer to embark on
an exploration into the busy worlds
she creates.
This was evident at the very
least by the vote for 2008 Stamp of
the Year when five of the ten most
popular stamps were created in her
studio on the island of Södermalm
in Stockholm. The winner was the
stamp depicting a heavily ladened
Midsummer table. In 1988, her
Dan Andersson stamp was also
named Stamp of the Year.
Inga-Karin Eriksson belonged
to a group of twelve gifted young
graphic artists that in 1979 were
accepted at the unique School of
Engraving at the Royal University
College of Fine Arts. Part of the final
project was to design a sketch for
the 1982 Swedish Europa stamp.
The winners were Lars Sjööblom
and Göran Österlund. Inga-Karin
engraved Göran Österlund's sketch
of a map, but it is the only stamp
engraving to her name. "Illustration
and design was more fun
and offered
more variety than
engraving," she says.
With the addition of Waterlilies,
Inga-Karin Eriksson has designed
almost 60 stamps.
She has also designed currency
notes at Tumba Bruk and illustrated
and designed books and posters.
Her most well-known poster is the
one she drew for Björn & Benny's
musical, "Kristina från Duvemåla".
For this stamp-like picture she
received an award in a competition
for best theatrical poster.

As mentioned in the article above, School of Engraving student Lars Sjööblom's design & engraving
was picked for the Swedish 1982 Europa stamp portraying Anders Celsius.
During Sjööblom's nearly 30 year career he has engraved over 400 stamps.

Below is his first.

Michel 1188
