Magazine Description

In this issue

"Our June issue celebrates some of the world’s most famous stamps, those with their own nicknames. What is the story behind the Basel Dove, the Inverted Swan, the Red Mercury, the Treskilling Yellow and others, and what is their true rarity? We also mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II by reporting on Great Britain’s new commemorative issue, and the lengths the Post Office went to during wartime to keep the printing presses running and maintain supplies of stamps. Commonwealth Classics focuses on the quirky 1929 Falkland Islands issue which paved the way for later pictorial designs, while Great Engravers features Vaclav Fajt, who created memorable stamp images for Czechoslovakia and it successor states. In our other regular feature, Black Magic, we ask why some users liked to cut the corners off Penny Blacks before affixing them to covers. Our news pages reveal coronavirus commemorative stamps from half a dozen countries, as well as interesting new issues from Jersey, Guernsey, Australia and more. And there’s more helpful suggestions as to how to continue to pursue your hobby even in ‘lockdown’ conditions."
