HOLT, Geoffrey

BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When Harrison and Sons were printing the 'London 1980' International Stamp Exhibition sheet stamp for Great Britain, the die had to be re-cut, resulting in two types. The miniature sheet, which was printed after the sheet stamps only contains the re-engraved die.

Harrison produced a souvenir sheet for the London 1980 international stamp exhibition. Though mainly printed in photogravure, the head of Queen Victoria was recess-printed. It was based on the Penny Black head and engraved by Geoffrey Holt.
