I am trying to obtain information and photographs regarding the engraver Robert Savage. I am currently organizing an exhibition that will celebrate next year the artistic as well as artisan legacy
of famous Czech artist Alphonse Mucha. Mr Savage engraved two important Czechoslovakian banknotes - one was issued in 1919, the other in 1920. With both banknotes he followed the design of Mr Mucha.
Also, both banknotes were - according to Czech sources - printed by the American Bank Note Company.
The exhibition titled Mucha: Art and Artisanship will be held in the Municipal Museum in the town of Carlsbad/Karlovy Vary from June 20th to August 14th 2018 - coinciding with the 53rd year
of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Any help readers can provide will be greatly appreciated. i can be reached via email at email@example.com
Thanks to NBS President Tom Harrison for forwarding Ondrej's note. He provided the following table and several images, some of which I've included here. Can anyone help?
I don't have copies of Gene Hessler's The Engraver's Line book - is Savage mentioned there? NOTE: see the George Manz article elsewhere in this issue on Canada's unissued
Edward VIII notes for another Robert Savage reference. -Editor
