Magazine Description

In this issue

"In the February issue of Stamp Magazine, we investigate the history and postal services of Alaska, seeking out local post offices and postmarks from remote islands, from frozen tundra and from America’s maritime border with Asia.   We rummage through the Royal Mail archives to find examples of the Queen not giving approval to stamp designs, and explain what it was that she didn’t like. We also ask which famous people started out as postmen, and bring you their amusing stories.   Our Commonwealth Classics feature has the inside line on how the 1934 pictorial issue of Grenada was created, while Great Engravers hails the work of Ferdinand Schirnböck, who is synonymous with the last days of the Austrian Empire. Our other regular feature, Black Magic, reveals the close relationship between the Penny Black and the Liverpool & Manchester Railway.   In our news pages, you’ll find full details of Royal Mail’s first new issue of 2020, other eye-catching sets from around the world, and the latest exhibition pieces which have come up for auction. Our columnists and readers add their own opinions on the most important matters of the moment."
