Description

A new issue belonging to the series Oficios Antiguos and dedicated to leather embossers, artisans who create with their hands unique and special pieces.

Spanish philately advances unstoppably at the pace of innovation, both in its theme and in the design and printing of stamps and other philatelic products. Proof of this is the stamp that is issued within the series Oficios Antiguos, which for years, is one of the most anticipated by collectors since it highlights the work of these artisans who, despite the passage of time, continue to create handmade creations with their hands.

Embossing is a work done by hand in which tools such as tracers, modelers or burin are used. First the idea is reflected on a paper or cardboard and then, with the wet leather, it begins to be engraved on it. Today, although machines have taken over, as in many aspects of life, these manual works still offer true works of art and, most importantly, useful and functional.

The unmistakable smell of leather continues to flood, fortunately, small workshops in Spain that dodge the passage of time.

The stamp, printed on leather, reproduces one of these unique and singular pieces.
