Magazine Description

In this issue

"In the August issue, we mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 by revealing the full story behind the USA’s famous First Man on the Moon stamp of 1969, and by picking out the best of the thousands of commemoratives issued in the interim.   We also take a light-hearted look at the history of the British postbox, in all its guises and colours, and how it has not always been treated with the respect it deserves.   A brand new series investigates Penny Black covers of 1840-41, beginning with a coverted ‘May dates’ multiple, while Commonwealth Classics hails the lovely 1931 bird-of-paradise pictorials of New Guinea. In our other regular slots, Great Engravers highlights the talents of René Quillivic, who created hundreds of classy stamps for France and its colonies, and GB Themes focuses on military uniforms.   Our news pages have full details of Royal Mail’s Curious Customs set, and other interesting new issues from around the world, along with highlights from the auction rooms. And our columnists and readers offer their opinions on subjects ranging from political stamps to philatelic books."
