Just a quick note to say that I've uploaded a short biography on the famous Swedish engraver Sven Ewert on my own blog, which you'll find by clicking HERE.

Among other things, it details the work done on his well-known definitive set portraying King Gustav VI Adolf.

Glenn! Sshhhhh, that's the competition we're talking about here. But I do feel flattered.

Anyway, don't worry, it's just this month that there's no engravers column in the mag. Everything should be okay again from next month on.

Also: I was thinking of you the other day. Have you seen the GB reproduction stamps thread on this forum (click HERE)? I was hoping you might be the one who could maybe answer this? After all, you're quite the fountain of knowledge!

That is fantastic, thank you very much, Glenn! I'm glad to see they're all in some way derived from their originals, so I can safely include them in my engravers collection.

What I'll do is copy your answer to the appropriate forum thread as well, to neatly wrap up the topic.

Thanks again, very much appreciated!

Seeing that it is such a lovely summer here I thought I'd go and have a look at France's engravers. So I've uploaded a short biography on Pierre Gandon on my blog, which you can find HERE.

It answers that question which will undoubtedly have been on your minds for ages: why on earth could someone as famous as Pierre Gandon get confused with Charles Mazelin?

Thanks for letting us know, cNA.

Leclercqz's best known stamp, I suppose, is this 1970s definitive:

Here's another one engraved by him.

On my blog, which you'll find HERE, you can see which ones are my personal favourites of his.

I've always loved that red cross stamp, it's a beauty. Who's the guy? Can't read it on the pic.

Why unissued? As far as I can see they're the airmail stamps belonging to the standard set.

Had you ever noticed there were two types of this particular Marianne series?

Whether yay or nay, you can read a bit more about them in my blog, which you'll find here.
