Stamp Magazine - October 2018 published by MyTimeMedia

Product Description

In the October issue we examine the impact that Art Nouveau had on stamp design in the last few years of the 19th century and first years of the 20th, and how later commemoratives celebrated the wide influence of this distinctive decorative style. We also study the complexity and collectability of the Machin definitive range with a case study of one particular stamp, the extensively used 9p violet of the 1970s, and cast our thoughts back to the early days of Britain’s public postal service, when mounted post-boys had to dodge highwaymen to get the mail through. Our regular Commonwealth Classics feature admires the Tercentenary issue of Barbados in 1927, our Great Engravers slot honours the work of Josef Hercik for Czechoslovakia, and our GB Themes pages consider how military and civilian aircraft have been depicted on British stamps. In our news pages, you’ll find full details of Royal Mail’s new sets celebrating the Old Vic and the last year of World War I, as well as new issues and auction highlights from around the world.
