Magazine Description

In this issue

"In the June issue, we mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria by examining the many and varied portraits of her which were used on 19th-century stamps, by Great Britain and the British Empire. They range from the regal to the ridiculous!   As Britain struggles with leaving the European Union, we also look back on commemorative issues from member countries which tell the long story of the development of the EU, from tentative beginnings in 1944 to the present day. And, in an extended extract from a new book about the stamps of the World War I period, we show how Germany’s designs and overprints reflect its rise as an empire and its retrenchment as a republic.   Commonwealth Classics celebrates the 1932 first commemorative issue of Antigua, with classic ships to the fore, while Great Engravers highlights the talents of Jules Piel, who was responsible for around 150 stunning issues for France. GB Themes roots out British stamps on the subject of dance.   In our news pages, you can read our verdicts on Royal Mail’s new British Engineering and Queen Victoria sets, hear about the most interesting new issues from around the world, and drool over the highlights from the latest auctions. As ever, our columnists and readers to offer their own forthright opinions a range of subjects, from Stampex to sub-postmasters."
