Swiss rural landscape / スイス田園風景





1973 Switzerland
design: H. Wetli (80c) and H. Hartmann (others)
engrave: H. Heusser

I think they are definitives stamps at that time.  Dark coloured lines are printed with slightly metallic ink.  Beautifully illustrated, original design for a series of stamps.  My best favorite stamp from this five is the second from the top.  Crisp Intaglio engrave lines are worth looking in magnifier.

当時のスイスの普通切手だったようですが、濃い線がメタリックなインクで印刷され、背景の色も美しく、この小さな切手のためにオリジナルで起こされたイラストが素晴らしい。このセットで一番のお気に入りは上から2番目の緑の切手です。カリカリと引かれた凹版印刷の線は、虫メガネで観察すると楽しいのです。
