animal of the nation / 国家的ビーバー

November 15, 2011

1 April 1954, Canada
design: Herman Schwartz
original illustration: Emanuel Hahn
engraver: Silas Allen

Another stamp with the Canadian Maple leaf, this time the main feature is their National animal, the Beaver.  This is the result of works by three people, the artist of the original art work, the designer and the engraver ( the job is completed by the printer, of course ).  It is interesting to read about them – their routes are from Germany, Holland and Canada.

The engraving work is really delicate and enjoyable to magnify… I know it’s a bit minor, but joyful!
