hard worker

500年前の働き者

5 May 1954, Germany
500 years of Gutenberg Bible
design: W. Brudi

Gutenberg invented ‘mobile’ letters which can be placed in a frame and set to make a page.  He also developed alloys for the letter press, the formula of ink for the method, and adapted the farmer’s press device for printing… I imagine he might have worked hard.

Mono and modest coloured stamp but strong – the atmosphere of a work place of 500 years ago is well presented within a small stamp.

グーテンベルグは文字を小さな活字にして組み合わせる方法を発明し、何度も使える活版のための合金の割合も考え、農家で使われていた圧搾プレスを組み合わせたり、、、よく働いた人だったのは間違いないです。

地味な一色刷りなのに、クール。小さな切手の中に500年前の仕事場の雰囲気が良く再現されています。
