Sorry, Som, I've no idea who engraved that Grenada stamp.

Trevor, you can always try and rotate it in a paint programme on your computer and then save the upright version. or, like you did, just take a new picture!

Here's another Martin Mörck for you all.

Ah yes, those four are fab. My favourite is the eagle by Lars Sjööblom. The detail in the feathering is just stunning, I think.

I have just come upon this thread and as far as I can see no one has answered your inquiry as to the name of the engraver of the Spanish 1953 50ptas airmail. It would be unreasonable to believe that it could be other than the engraver Alfonso Sanchez-Toda, but I have no proof of it. The surname is the same as that of the engraver of La Maja Desnuda, and again it would be unreasonable not to believe there is a family connection. More than that I know not, except that Alfonso also enjoyed engraving nude women. No doubt there was a market for nude women, especially in Spain!

If you enjoy looking at nude women, google his name along with "grabador" -- Spanish for engraver; nothing to do with grabbing them!.
