A personal tribute to Czeslaw Slania

Otto Hornung pays a personal tribute to his friend, Czeslaw Slania, in an article that appears on the Stanley Gibbons website.

One of the more interesting anecdotes in the article is that Slania had secretly placed his mother's name on several Polish postage stamps he had engraved.

Czeslaw Slania is considered to be one of the world's most famous stamp engravers. He died earlier this year on March 17 at the age of 83.
