Czeslaw Slania 1921-2005.

One of my childhood heroes, this remarkable engraver died March 22'nd after creating over a 1000 stamps, banknotes for both Canada, Argentina and the Vatican and many other things.

I often admired his miniature masterpieces and dedicated craftmanship when I collected stamps as a boy.
