riding in the woods

森の中を自転車で走る

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!
