From the original Engravers thread, by Carmen:

Ah... the uses of Wikipedia... in the entry on Slania, and I'm assuming it's because it was his 1000th stamp:

"His 1000th engraved stamp, the painting "Great Deeds by Swedish Kings" by David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl (2000), is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest engraved stamp ever issued."

In 2002, Slania engraved two stamps for the Sweden-Thailand joint issue on royal palaces:

The stamps were also made available in a special presentation folder, which included cancelled copies of both the Swedish and the Thai versions, and an engraved black print of the actual engraved part of the two stamps, se-tenant on paper. I'd shown this before, on our blog, but thought it would look good here as well.
