I am offering for sale the software that allow you to print album pages for every postage stamp engraved (or designed) by Czesław Słania, the world’s foremost and most prolific stamp engraver. The album contains 164 pages with spaces for more than 1,400 stamps from 32 countries. The album spaces are sized to accommodate standard stamp mounts. UPON RECEIPT OF PAYMENT, I WILL SEND THE FILES BY EMAIL TO THE ADDRESS YOU INDICATE.
In addition to the album pages on 32 Adobe Reader™ pdf files, I am including 32 Microsoft Excel™ files that provide a checklist for all of the stamps in the album.
Czesław Słania collecting is a very hot topic at the present time and, although all of the stamps are readily available at reasonable prices, they are rapidly becoming harder to find. See where Słania pictures himself and others on Poland Sc #563 and B99, Sweden #994 (Slania and his friends) and #1012 (his mother), and United Nations NY #474 and #715 and UN Vienna #63 and #229. See where Słania secretly includes the names of friends and family members on Denmark #415 and Poland #544, #593, #654, #658 and #C30, and Sweden #699 and #700. See overland mail carrier Jákup Andreas Henriksen on the 1976 stamp commemorating inauguration of the Faroese Post Office, Faroe Islands #23, and the same mail carrier on the 2001 stamp celebrating the Post Office’s 25th anniversary, #395.
I spent hundreds of hours designing this album to house my own collection of Słania stamps, and I am willing to share the fruit of my efforts for a reasonable charge.
I have shown two illustrative album pages, one empty and one with mounted stamps. PLEASE NOTE: NO PAGES, STAMPS OR MOUNTS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS SALE – JUST THE SOFTWARE NECESSARY TO PRINT A COMPLETE ALBUM OF CZESŁAW SŁANIA POSTAGE STAMPS ON YOUR COMPUTER’S PRINTER.
Purchase of this software gives you – and only you – license to print the pages of a czesŁaw sŁania album and country checklists only for your own personal use and not for sale. I retain a copyright in all of the files i send. All sales are final.
About Czesław Słania
Czesław Słania (pronounced Chess-wav Swan-ya) was born in Silesia, Poland in 1921. As a small boy, he demonstrated advanced talents for drawing and producing miniature engravings. When he was older, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, recognized as one of the best art graphic centers in Europe. Mr. Słania’s diploma engraving was an interpretation in the small format of the Polish artist Jan Matejko’s grand painting “The Battle of Grunwald” about the battle of Grunwald/Tannenberg in 1410. For this work, Mr. Słania was awarded his diploma with a special honor.
While still a student, Mr. Słania was employed by the Polish Stamp Printing Works, where he learned to engrave in steel, a harder, more demanding metal than copper. The first stamp by Mr. Słania was issued in Poland on 24 March 1951.
Having engraved 23 stamps, the young engraver went out into the world to seek his fortune. He came to Sweden in 1956. Since then, Mr. Słania had been faithful to the Swedish Post Office, but he was also a cosmopolitan who visited numerous countries and areas and made stamp and banknote engravings in many of them, including for Denmark, Iceland, France, Monaco, Israel, Brazil, Tunisia, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Singapore, China, Belgium, Poland, the Vatican, Thailand, Spain, Hong Kong and others, as well as the United Nations.
Having learned his craft so early and also having it as his hobby, Mr. Słania engraved more stamps and banknotes than any other engraver. His stamps have received the highest awards. He was Court Engraver in Sweden from 1972 until his death. He has also received the Order of Saint Charles and the order Mérite Culturel in Monaco and the Dannebrog Order in Denmark. In 1983, he received the Robert Stolz Music Prize for the “Music” stamps in Sweden. In 1999, he was awarded the highest order from Poland, the Commander Order, by the Polish President.
In 1986, he produced engravings for six United Nations stamps on the theme “Philately &mdash The International Hobby”. Two of these stamps reproduce engravings that show Mr. Słania at work, hunched over a polished steel die. In 1997, six stamps incorporating the 1986 designs were issued to pay tribute to philately.
His 1,000th stamp was issued in March 2000 for the Swedish Post. In commemoration of this milestone, a souvenir sheet was released, which remains one of his finest pieces of work.
Czesław Słania died on 17 March 2005 in Stockholm. Because of the number of items he engraved and their beauty, Czesław Słania is considered the world's most famous engraver.
