» Pierre ALBUISSON Artiste – Draftsman – Engraver Master MOF and councillor at the committee of the philatelic programs of FRENCH SOUTHERN AND ANTARCTIC TERRITORIES had the idea of this first stamp in embossing – medal during the philatelic demonstration and the demonstrations of the various techniques of engravings to Mâcon in 2015.
