first silhouette / 肖像がシルエットに

October 24, 2010




2 May 1966, UK
‘Landscapes’
design: Leonard Rosoman
Queen’s portrait, adapted by David Gentleman from coinage

The first set of stamps with the Queen’s shilhouette – improvement in design and four different, delicately selected blue backgrounds matching the colours of the pictures. The silhouettes still occupy a large space on each stamp, but they are already proving that it was a good idea!

前のポストで触れた「女王のシルエット」が導入された最初の切手たちです。微妙な違いの4色の背景の青が図柄によって選ばれ、イングランド、北アイルランド、ウェールズとスコットランドの風景が四季にあてはめられた切手。女王のシルエットはまだかなりの面積を占めていますが、それでも試した甲斐があった、と思わせる仕上がり。
