Magazine Description

In this issue

In the January issue we investigate the interesting stamps and postal history of the Faroe Islands, from bisects of Danish stamps, through British-occupation overprints, to recess-printed modern commemoratives. We also study postal usage of the last Great Britain definitive series of King George V, issued in 1934-36, which commenced a new era of photogravure printing and overlapped into the following two reigns. And we take an intriguing thematic look at influential literature written in prison — and find that there is much more of it than you might think! Our regular Commonwealth Classics feature celebrates Newfoundland’s one-and-only triangular stamp, from 1857, our Great Engravers slot celebrates the work of Henry Cheffer for France and other European countries, and our GB Themes pages assess the range of British stamps on the subject of medicine and health services. In our news section, you’ll find full details of Royal Mail’s miniature sheet marking Prince Charles’ 70th birthday, our pick of the most interesting new issues from around the world and highlights from the auction rooms, and the revelation that the United States plans to quit the Universal Postal Union. As ever, our columnists and our readers’ letters offer lots of incisive opinion.
