Magazine Description

In this issue

In our May issue, we try to get inside the head of Philipp von Ferrary, the man who put together the greatest private collection the world has ever seen, on the 100th anniversary of his death. And we tell the full story behind the popular 1967 British Wild Flowers stamp issue, which was released 50 years ago. There is an appreciation of the long-lasting influence of John Gower, the guru of Australian first day cover producers, and of the evocative first stamps of Aden, which appeared in 1937. You can also read about portrait paintings as a theme on GB stamps, and how a desert buffer zone in the western Sahara became a stamp-issuing country and an important airmail staging post. We give our verdict on Royal Mail’s special issues featuring Racehorse Legends and Songbirds, and there is all our regular coverage of world news, auction highlights and events.
