Magazine Description

In this issue

In the April issue of Stamp Magazine, we catalogue the many errors which have affected Post & Go stamps produced by Royal Mail machines over the past eight years, and investigate what caused them. We celebrate the 500th anniversary of the death of Raphael, by examining how his paintings and frescoes have become very popular stamp images, especially at Christmas and Easter. And we introduce you to the philately and postal history of Haiti, a country often unfairly overlooked by British collectors. Our Commonwealth Classics feature recalls a beautiful Canadian issue of 1933, while Great Engravers focuses on Sverre Morken, creator of many of the finest Norwegian stamps. Our other regular feature, Black Magic, showcases a Penny Black cover sent on the day the colour of cancelling ink was changed in 1841. In our news pages, you’ll find full details of Royal Mail’s latest special issue celebrating the James Bond films, and other interesting new stamps from around the world, as well as highlights from the auction rooms. As ever, our columnists and readers speak out boldly on the major topics of the day.
