riding in the woods / 森の中を走る

December 30, 2010

22 March 1974, Canada
‘Cycling’ in Olympic Games, Keeping Fit series
design: David Hunter
based on a photograph by Crombie McNeill
engrave: Donald J. Mitchell

Another stamp featuring a family cycling in the woods from Canada, in mono-colour.  This one has unusual Intaglio effect on it – you can see the Olympic rings over the picture if you enlarge.

I don’t have a catalogue of Canadian stamps.  Is anyone able to tell me about the designer who did this optical illusion?

家族で森をサイクリングしている切手をもう一枚。これもモノトーンで、凹版印刷の技術を使って不思議な効果を出していて、拡大するとオリンピックのマークが見えてきます。

カナダの切手のカタログを持っていなくデザイナー名が不詳です。どなたかご存知だったらぜひ教えてください。

p.s. Name of designer, original photo and engraver were tought by Jürgen of Europa Stamps.  Thanks, Jürgen!

追記:デザインに関する詳細はのちにEuropa Stampsを主宰するJürgenより教えてもらいました。ありがとう!

    The designer of this stamp is David Hunter
    based on a photograph by Crombie McNeill – Picture engraved by Donald J. Mitchell.

    It’s not the olympic rings that you can see on this stamp, but the 1976 Montreal Olympics logo.

    I found all those information on the Canadian postal archives database : http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/archivianet/020117/020117030206_e.html
