Magazine Description

In this issue

"In the December issue, we investigate the complex history of the attractive and iconic Lakatoi pictorial issues of British New Guinea and Papua, produced in three different ways by various printers from 1901-32.   We also examine the collectability of Great Britain’s registered postal stationery, from the age of Queen Victoria to that of Queen Elizabeth II, and we present a thematic guide to falcons and kestrels, the rapid raptors which have been celebrated philatelically more than most bird groups.   Commonwealth Classics features the 1935 definitive issue of Kenya, Uganda & Tanganyika, the first combined issue from those colonies, while Black Magic looks at the circumstances in which a Penny Black might be used on a Mulready lettersheet. Great Engravers hails the work of Karl Bickel, credited with transforming the stamps of Switzerland.   Our news pages give our verdict on two special issues from Royal Mail, celebrating the Gruffalo and Christmas, along with other interesting new releases from around the world. Auction highlights include an American treasure which sold for a seven-figure sum, and our columnists and readers offer their forthright opinions on the latest talking points."
