Most of Skov Jørgensen’s work was for Denmark, but he also engraved two stamps for Greenland, in 2009 and 2010. They were issued to mark the centenaries of Danish stations; the 2009 stamp had the North Star mission station as its theme, and the 2010 stamp the Thule trading station. They stand apart for their rather remarkable imagery.
Among his own favourites Skov Jørgensen counts the 2010 Ribe stamps, for obvious reasons. Once again, we find an issue which links back to Skov Jørgensen’s own life. The two stamps, marking the 1300th anniversary of the town, depict the statue of Queen Dagmar and part of Ribe Cathedral, the very same where Skov Jørgensen’s grandfather was Bishop. Ribe also happened to be where Skov Jörgensen first moved to after leaving the nest.To be continued!
