print method and motif -2

モチーフと印刷-2

1 July 1966, Japan
Firefly Squid
definitive

These two stamps are showing gleaming squid and ‘Marimo’ Moss Balls, both in the water.  The coarsely finished paper and 2-3 coloured Gravure printing are cost effective and matching very well to the motifs – translucency of squid and reflected light on fish and delicate surface of the Moss Balls…  Spot-on job!

普通切手

水中のホタルイカ。ざらっとした紙の質感に2~3色で重ねたグラビア印刷のけっして高価ではない手法ですが、濃淡の調整が細やかで、ホタルイカの少し透けている質感が巧みに表現されています。
