Designs / Layouts

Faeroe Islands
Although this set from the Faeroe Islands has previously been ascribed to Czeslaw Slania as engraved by him, and was also included in Faeroe Post's account of the number of his Faeroese stamp engravings, I have been informed that all the stamps are designed by the Faeroese artist Bárdur Jákupsson after a layout presented by Czeslaw Slania. The set is printed in Poland by Ars Polona in Warsaw. Each of the stamps were printed in sheets of 20, and show beautifully the master engraver's manifold prolific talents.

If any visitor to this page is aware of stamp layouts, done by Slania, from his country, I will be happy to receive such information by email, containing relevant image(s) and appropriate indication of source(s). Reliable information will be published here, with full credits.

United States of America 
Prior to the release in 2005 of the annual United States Fish & Wildlife Service "Duck Stamp, The Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation announced that the stamp was designed by Czeslaw Slania and Piotr Naszarkowski. This was quite surprising, because the program is a great American tradition, not usually open to foreign artists. The Swedish artists' participation was provided by Slania's ongoing connection with Sennett Security Products, who did the printing. Although some websites have proclaimed that the stamp was "engraved by Czeslaw Slania", that is not what was stated on the official announcement. 

Below are images of the stamp and the souvenir sheet for your viewing pleasure.
