Magazine Description

In this issue

In our August issue we consider one of the many possible approaches to an Olympic Games thematic collection: the host cities’ official logos and mascots have been increasingly popular stamp motifs since the 1960s. We also investigate some of the rarest of all British postal history, in the shape of letters sent from the temporary construction camps for major engineering projects in Scotland, which had their own post offices and cancellations. Amongst our regular features, Commonwealth Classics tells the story behind New Zealand’s unflattering 1890-91 portraits of Queen Victoria, while Great Engravers celebrates the work of Marcus Baldwin, who created some of the most memorable stamps of the United States. Black Magic examines whether a classic cover bearing a Penny Black affixed upside-down was a revolutionary protest. Our news pages have details of Royal Mail’s special issue celebrating the Dennis the Menace comic strip, and what the future holds for the world’s most expensive stamp, now that it is in the hands of Stanley Gibbons.
