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?



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
