 "Edmund Dulac was a French-born, British naturalized illustrator and stamp designer. Born in Toulouse he studied law but later turned to the study of Art at the École des Beaux-Arts. He moved to London early in the 20th century and in 1905 received his first commission to illustrate the novels of the Brontë Sisters. During World War I, Dulac produced relief books and when after the war the Deluxe children's book market shrank , he turned to magazine illustrations among other ventures. He designed banknotes during World War II and postage stamps. (..)"

[ There are two stamps, one from Martinique 1945 and other from Guadeloupe 1945, that must have been designed by Edmund Dulac, but I have no data from the catalogs.. I only know that the printing was from De La Rue.Co, London in both cases.. knowing that Edmund Dulac used always British Printers,we could assume that those stamps were designed by him, but I prefer to follow the Catalogs and so, I don't present those two stamps... ]
