print method and motif -2 / モチーフと印刷-2

February 8, 2012

1 July 1966 (top) and 1 September 1969, Japan
Firefly Squid and Moss Balls

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!
