Looking for a PDF of Tony Walker's Predecimal Machin stamp Exhibit

Post by descartes46 »

Does anybody have a PDF version of Mr. Tony Walker's Predecimal Machin Exhibit. I am particularly interested in the design and development of the Machin Head (Frames 1 -3).

I found some material on the Corbitt Auction website (albeit I was too late to bid).

I would love to read his full exhibit on the predecimal design process.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the link. Unfortunately it doesn't open for me, but I did manage to email Tony Walker and he's emailing me the frames ... I'm very happy as I'll finally be able to read up on the artistic processes that led to the final and beautiful Machin design! :D
