They are philb. That must have been great to meet him as he sounds from all accounts to have been an interesting guy.
I think Slania did a great job on capturing Patterson who was included twice for his two separate titles.

Jacques Derrey (1907-1975) was a French painter and engraver. Many of the stamps he produced were issued by former French colonies during the 1960s. Here are images of five examples of his work, all stamps designed and engraved by Derrey, except as noted.

nethryk - Thanks for these works by Jacques Derrey (whose name I have never come across so far) splendidly interpreted by French printers.

Your contribution to the evaluation of the postage stamp as a world cultural heritage site is great, indeed.

It is a pity that some of the former contributors to this thread might be prevented by personal circumstances from continuing to take part in it.

florian - You're welcome, and thanks for the compliment. Yes, it sure would be great if more collectors would contribute stamp images and/or informative posts in this thread.

Here are images of three examples of the engraving work of Japanese engraver Senkichi Mizutani, about whom I currently have no further information. Each stamp was designed by a different Japanese artist, and issued by Japan.

During the 1940s, Spanish engraver Jesús Terriza de Coca (1929- ) studied engraving at the National School of Graphic Arts in Madrid; drawing at the School of Fine Arts; and painting, design and engraving at the School of Arts and Crafts. In 1954, Terriza do Coca began his career as a banknote and postage stamp engraver by freelancing at the Spanish Royal Mint. By 1985, he had worked his way up to assistant artistic engraver at the FNMT; he retired in 1994. Here are four examples of Terizza de Coca's engraving work, all stamps issued by Spain.

Last December, lithograving posted an image of a Christmas stamp engraved by Austrian engraver Gerhart Schmirl (1942- .) Schmirl studied at the National Technical School in Steyer, and joined the Austrian National Bank in 1972. From 1982-87 he attended master classes in drawing under Professor Otto Zeiller. Schmirl has engraved both banknotes and postage stamps for Austria. Here are images of three more stamps designed by various Austrian artists and combined engraved by Schmirl and photogravure.

This great thread is still going strong and I have been enjoying it as a spectator all along, but the time has come for me to rejoin the posting. The main reason for this is that there is only one of JAC Harrison's stamps in all of these 65 pages.

Born in 1872 JACH (as he was called) engraved right to the end in 1955. He engraved for many countries apart from Great Britain; here is an incomplete list (please add any I have left out) :


Downey heads ; June 22 1911
Re-engraved Downeys January 1 1912
August 1912 2d KGV
1912—13 rest of definitive series
1914 Sea horses (Waterlow)
1920 Cook for Cook Islands (Rarotonga)
1922 Independence centenary for Brazil 300 I
1924 Velasco Costa Rica 2c
1924-25 Morazan Salvador 35 c
1924-5 BE Exhibiton Wembley 1d and 1.5d
1924 UPU stamp 1 Pound
1924-5 3 Commem issues for Portugal
(Camoens, Branco and Marquis de Pombal
1926 Arms of Malta high values also prob his work
1926KGV in full dress for NZ 2s and 3s
1926 The Sprinbook (0.5d) and Van Riebeck's ship (1d) and the orange tree (6d) for South A.
1926 Spanish red cross issue Royalty
1926 Dr Montufar for Guatemala (2p50)
1927 Canberra issue for Australia
1928 Catacombs excavation fund for Spain Pope and King
1928-30 Garzon For Uruguay
1932 Columbus for Colombia
1931 + Stamps for the British commonwealth:
British Guiana
Sierra Leone
Jamaica lanscapes
Jubilee stamps for Nth Borneo
Cayman Islands Assembly of justices…
The rajah for Sarawak 1932
Kings for Thailand 1932
1935 8c for Johore
Omnibus series for silver jubilee of KGV
Silver Jubilee for Sth Rhodesia
1936—a flood of new issue for the BC for KGVI
First was Sth Rhodesia ( a masterpiece)
1940 Cecil Rhodes
1942-43 Watussi native heads for Congo

Enough chatting, I guess his best work would be the 1929 £1 Postal Union Congress Issue. I don't ownan original copy as they are pretty expensive, but I do have a block printed from the original plates...which is almost as good, I hope:



A closer look at a single stamp:

One of his first engravings was the 1911 Downey head issue, The first with King George V. I wont post a scan as there are many scans of much higher quality than I could provide in Skilo54's very informative thread:

Another quite famous engraving was the 1913 Seahorses issue:


there were four denominations issued:

Tefloncinco - I'm glad that you like some of the engraved stamp images posted in this thread. However, none of the Austria stamps included in your post above were engraved. They were all printed by a different process called lithography, and therefore they do not belong in this thread. - nethryk
