24 March 1977 Sweden

designer: R Martensson
engraver: Czesław Słania

The snow has stayed for a week on country roads and I couldn’t take the risk of riding on frozen surfaces.  It was raining all day today, so maybe tomorrow we have the chance to ride?

The detail in this stamp is great, as enlarged below.  Slania has proven that single coloured stamps can be very enjoyable.

1977Sweden001-2

積もった雪が道路をかちかちに凍らせてから一週間ほど経ちます。ぜったいに転ぶと思って自転車に乗ってないのだけど、かなり限界。風を切って走りたい!今日は一日中雨だったので、雪も溶けたはず。明日には出かけてみます。

このスラニアが彫った凹版印刷のディテールは素晴らしいです。単色でもここまで描き込める、という挑戦のような切手。
