Norwegian Engraver Practices His Art in China

Reporter Tang Yingxian writes about a Scandinavian engraver has produced almost 670 stamps for more than 15 countries on the China Daily website.

Martin Morck, shown here, is a freelance master engraver whose recent series of stamps have been jointly issued by China Post and Post Denmark.

According to the article, "Morck has engraved several stamps for China since 2010, including a set of portraits on European musicians. The bridge between Morck and China is Post Denmark, for which Morck is a master engraver."

It goes on to say, "Morck's work has also created a lot of buzz among China's 20 million stamp collectors. Many of them send stamps to Denmark for Morck to sign."

Morck has been instructing 10 Chinese students on engraving through a one-year training program jointly organized by the China Postage Printing Bureau and Post Denmark. The goal is to continue the art in China and throughout the world.
