lithograving - You're welcome! Yes, SG provides useful information for many issues. But it is my understanding that only the older SG catalogues (when they were still published in only three volumes) contain printer, designer and engraver information. My own trusty (and somewhat musty) three-volume SG "set" consists of the following: British Commonwealth, 1973; Europe & colonies, 1965; America, Asia, and Africa, 1968. I have found SG to be an invaluable aid in researching my stamps. - nethyrk

Anthony, I see you've been busy in adding to the engravers index
on Page 47. Thanks also to Andrew.

I wonder if there is any way the moderators could put this on Page One.

3 pages at a time, slowly but surely, we'll get there :)

Pages 41 to 47 are indexed.
I think Anthony's has the first 6 or 7 so far.

Only about 30 to go ;)

AnthonyUK - Bravo!

I note that several of your Laos stamps were engraved by Jacky Larrivière (1946- ), a 1965 graduate of l'École Estienne who has designed and/or engraved approximately 300 stamps for various postal administrations during his career. Here are images of four more examples of Larrivière's skills.

- nethryk

Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus, formerly known as Alopex lagopus), designed by Þröstur Magnússon, and issued by Iceland on January 24, 1980, Scott No. 527, Facit No. 588.


Blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus), designed by Jacky Larrivière, and issued by Monaco on April 27, 1983 to promote the Save the Whales campaign, Scott No. 1374.


Fishery resources, designed by Jean-Jacques Oliviero, a French artist-in-residence on St. Pierre, and issued by St. Pierre & Miquelon on July 14, 1989, Scott No. 485.


Wood Hedgehog (Hydnum repandum), designed by naturalist Daniel Abraham, and issued by St. Pierre & Miquelon on January 17, 1990 as one of four stamps in a mushrooms set, Scott No. 490.

Pending that, I put a link to Page 47 in my post at the bottom of page one. As soon as a better solution shows up, I'll wipe mine out, but it might be helpful for now...

Great work by all, indexers and scanners alike.

Thanks Cjd, that will help.

I didn't realize until now that there is no time limit to
edit ones posts.
I thought it was limited to just a few days.

Or maybe that was on another board.

A couple of AnthonyUK's Laos stamps posted above were engraved by another distinguished French stamp designer and engraver, Claude Jumelet (1946- ), who also studied at l'École Estienne. Jumelet has produced hundreds of stamps for France and for other countries during his long career, which began in 1967. Here are images of five examples of Jumelet's work from both early in his career, and also from more recent times.

Lunga drum, designed by René Quillivic (1925- ), and issued by Burkina Faso (Upper Volta) on March 1, 1971, Scott No. 239.


René Duguay-Trouin (1673-1736), French corsair, a semi-postal stamp designed by Jacques GauTheir (1931- ), and issued by France on June 9, 1973, Scott No. B467, Y&T No. 1748.


Marianne, designed by Eve Luquet (1954- ), and issued by France on July 15, 1997, Scott No. 2587, Y&T No. 3093


John Calvin (1509-1564), French theologian and pastor during the Protestant Reformation, designed by Jumelet, and issued by France on May 22, 2009, Scott No. 3681, Y&T No. 4356.


François-Auguste-René Rodin (1840-1917), French sculptor, and one of his most famous marble sculptures, The Kiss (1889), designed by Italian illustrator and stamp designer Irio Ottavio Fantini (1943-2009), and issued by Monaco on December 4, 2009, Scott No. 2569.

At the risk of messing up the thread with my laudatory comments just let me say that a great way to enjoy these scans is to put them on a thumb drive and insert them in one of those little family photo display things and watch them as a slide show. It took me many years to see stamps as an art form and this is a great way to enjoy and appreciate them.

Marian Romuald Polak (?-1966) was a Polish engraver and also a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (where Czeslaw Slania was one of his students.) Here are five examples of Polak's work for Poland, featuring designs by various Polish artists.

- nethryk

Worker and dove, designed by graphic artist Tadeusz Lucjan Gronowski (1894-1990), and issued on August 31, 1950 to publicize the Polish Peace Conference in Warsaw, Scott No. 486, SG No. 683.


Workers, designed by painter, graphic and poster artist Wlodzimierz Zakrzewski (1916-1992), and issued on April 15, 1951 to publicize Poland's 6-year plan, Scott No. 508, SG No. 696a.


Worker and shipyard, designed by Stefan Lukaszewski, and issued on March 16, 1956 as one of a set of five stamps honoring the Polish Merchant Navy, Scott No. 722, SG No. 965.


Monument to John III Sobieski (1629-1696), King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania, designed by artist Edmund John after the Baroque statue (1788) by Andrzej Le Bruno located in Warsaw, and issued on July 10, 1956, Scott No. 738, SG No. 978. That would be an unfortunate Turkish soldier cowering under the horse's hooves, a reference to Sobieski's greatest military victory, at the Battle of Vienna in 1683.


Smierc (Death), designed by Jerzy Desselberger after a painting (1902) by Polish Symbolist Jacek Malczewski (1854-1929), depicting Death as a woman gently closing the eyes of an old man, and issued by Poland on June 29, 1959, Scott No. 853, SG No. 1099.
