Stamp Magazine

December 2023 In the December issue of Stamp Magazine, we explore the story of the nude on postage stamps, from classical and Renaissance art to modernism and the permissive society. Has philately imitated art? We also investigate the story of the Inca postal service, before the Spanish conquest of Peru in the 16th century. It had an amazing level of sophistication, but messages were not written in pen and ink… Our series on Great Britain’s special issues in the early years of Queen Elizabeth II reaches the 1964 Forth Road Bridge set, with its strikingly modern designs by a novice artist. Meanwhile, Commonwealth Classics recalls the King Edward VII definitive series of the Bahamas. The news pages give our verdict on Royal Mail’s Harry Potter and Christmas special issues, report on eye-catching new stamps from around the globe, and showcase the latest highlights from the auction rooms. Don’t miss it!

Too much concentration on new issues of stamps. I like reading about the history of older stamps and the circumstances that brought them about. Reviewed Saturday, April 25, 2020
