    As many of the members know, this Polish Master Engraver died in March of 2005. His work created great pieces of engraved art but began Discussion & Study Groups, Web sites & even 1 book, "The Engraving Art of Czlaw Slania.
    He did engraving for a host of different countries and perhaps you have a favorite stamp of his in your collection. Please feel free to share a scan or
    scans with the group. He did 7 different designs for Iceland in the 1980's & 90's
    The quality of his work is evident in these scans.

    Hello Harry, there is some improvement but your image below measures about 1¾" x 4" (on my small screen laptop) . I have just copied your image and pasted it directly into this conversation unedited. As I am typing it shows to be about 4½" x 10½" too big to fit all on my screen. I have to scroll down a little to see each of the three individual elements of the image.
    They are very fine engravings.
    My Dell laptop screen is 14" x 8" ideal for travelling.
    Regards James

    Harry, after posting your image, if I then click on the (Click on this image to see the full size version) It is not quite possible to see the whole of each mini-sheet, I have to scroll a little to the right. Beautiful detail.

    Regards, James.

    Hello Harry, the images are somewhat better, but still quite small on my 14" Dell laptop.
    On that website the image that I've copied below measures 1¾" x 4". An un-edited copy and paste to this conversation shows on my screen as 4½" x 10½"
    I have to scroll down to see each of the 3 mini-sheets.

    Very fine engravings.
    Regards, James.

    Hello Harry, On viewing the previous post, the image is about 6" x 13½" approx, on clicking (click on this image to see the full-size version) the image increases to about 15" x 33"? a little too large to show each mini-sheet in full, I have to scroll sideways and down.
    Each perforation shows as about a 4mm spot.

    Regards, James.

    Good evening James,
    I'm just having my 2nd cup of java and reading your posts. It reminded me a bit of the problem Goldilocks was having with the bear's porridge.
    All silliness aside, perhaps it the difference in our OS. I'm working on
    a MacBook Pro laptop w/ a 7"x11" screen (Diag. 13"). and the scans fit perfectly.
    How did the St. Brendan sheet look on my 'Fav. Booklet' post?
    Time to refill my coffee cup &
    Thanks for your input,
