Magazine Description

In this issue

"Our October issue celebrates the 150th anniversary of Britain’s first halfpenny stamp, which remains the country’s smallest ever stamp. Why was such a low value necessary, how was it designed and how was it used? We also explore the Blue Riband as a theme, presenting the finest stamps from around the world honouring the transatlantic ocean liners which held the prestigious title. And we investigate what has become of the four quaint sub-post offices which were illustrated in Royal Mail’s 1997 set. Spoiler alert: they have not fared well. Commonwealth Classics investigates the King Edward VII definitive series of Canada, whose design is credited to the Prince of Wales, while Great Engravers focuses on the work of Bertil Skov Jorgensen, perhaps the last practitioner of the art for the Danish postal service. Our other regular feature, Black Magic, asks why a Penny Black cover might have been cancelled with a thumbprint? Our news pages contain a detailed preview of Virtual Stampex, give our verdict Royal Mail’s issue on the theme of Sherlock Holmes, and present philatelic news and new issues from around the world."
