turbine / タービン

15th Anniversary of Nationalized Industries: Turbine
design: A. Pilch / engraver: Georg Wimmer

Another stamp depicting a factory interior with a large rotor of a generator.  Looks like a massive and heavy machine, diagonally hung from a gantry – and somehow it evokes lightness.  Beautiful intaglio work.

オーストリアからもう一枚、工場の室内を描いた切手です。巨大なタービンらしい機械が天井の格子から斜めにぶら下がって、、、なぜか軽やかに見える風景。凹版の美しい表現です。

Steelworks / 製鉄所

15 September 1961, Austria
15th Anniversary of Nationalized Industries: Steelworks, Linz
design: A. Pilch / engraver: Georg Wimmer

A modest mono colour, but with elaborate engraving makes this stamp very powerful.

単色の印刷ながら、精緻な凹版彫刻がこの切手を迫力ある一枚にしています。
