In Correos we pay our particular tribute to the genius of Graphic Humor, with the new Forges stamp, in block sheet format.
On this occasion, the motif of the stamp is the unrepeatable master Forges, who appears on this die-cut block sheet inside a sandwich and turned into one of his drawings. The drawing appears to be tracing with his pen the real Forges.

What is a block sheet, and how is it different from a normal seal?
Taking into account that the normal seal has only the surface occupied by the seal, the block sheet is an illustrated surface where one or more seals can appear, so its dimension will be larger, occupying that of the seal and the rest of the sheet and, their sizes and shapes can be very varied.
A curious fact that also differentiates the seal and the block sheet, is that in the first one live characters cannot appear, but in the environment of the seal in the block sheet yes.
How many stamps are on this block sheet?
This block sheet of Forges has a stamp, with a postal value of € 5.20, which is starred by a close-up of the artist who pretends to be drawn by himself.
