I have just read that the famous French stamp engraver and designer, Pierre Béquet, died on 21 December 2012.

Béquet engraved over a 100 stamps for France and other countries, from the sixties onwards, until the beginning of this century.

As with other French top designers, Béquet's name will live on forever, him being the creator of the Marianne de Béquet stamp. This very modern take on the traditional Marianne concept was introduced in 1971 and remained in use for some seven years.
