Does anyone have any information on the person who autographed this Gibraltar booklet? The designer perhaps? I don't have any specialty catalogs for Gibraltar and nothing comes up when I google the name which I think is maybe "A. Lyman." Thanks so much in advance!

re: Question about a Gibraltar booklet

A. G. Ryman was the designer of many stamp issues by Gibraltar, including the 1974 UPU issues found in your booklet.
I haven't find out much else about him, except he was a native of Gibraltar, known as Freddie Ryman, had an MBE, and is no longer alive.

re: Question about a Gibraltar booklet

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I had a hunch it was a designer autograph, but I wasn't sure of the spelling so my Google searches were bringing up diddly squat. I really appreciate the answer. I knew someone here would know who it was. Stamporama folks are awesome!

I think one of the best aspects of stamp collecting is the little sleuthing adventures we undertake to understand more about these little historical bits of paper. I love those "aha" moments when you finally understand. A great example is Bob's research about the cat on the Lindburgh stamp! Loved that story.

re: Question about a Gibraltar booklet

I have found a reference to Freddy Layman, which actually illustrates the type of work he did. The image is the best I can do, as the source is low quality. The artwork below was never adopted:

re: Question about a Gibraltar booklet

The Stanley Gibbons British Commonwealth Catalogue gives designer and printer information for stamp issues. Well worth picking up an old copy cheap! I still use a 1991 version.
