two-way arrows 2 / 双方向矢印 2

October 1, 2017

21 October 1966, USA
Great River Road
design: Herbert Bayer of Aspen

The river looks modest in this stamp, but in fact it is 2,069.0 miles ( 3,327.9 kilometers ) long – and it is a road for cars, sign posted through ten states of the US.  This simple design is printed with intaglio and lithography methods, in 3 colours.

3色刷りのぱっきりしたデザインですが、切手の小ささのゆえ描かれた「川沿いの自動車道」が3,300キロ以上ある(だいたい那覇から旭川ぐらいの距離のようです)ことをうまく想像できません。印刷には凹版とリトグラフが使われているようですが、他にもこの組み合わせ、ありますか?
