Stamp Magazine - September 2018 published by MyTimeMedia

Product Description

In the September issue we celebrate the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s first voyage of discovery, by assessing how it has been commemorated in the stamps of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific islands. Switching from the Pacific to the Atlantic, we examine the story of the British drift cards experimentally ‘posted’ on the ocean currents in the 1950s. Our regular Commonwealth Classics feature considers the Colony of Canada’s iconic 1851 design illustrating the American beaver, widely considered the first genuinely pictorial stamp, while our Great Engravers slot shows the importance of Guillaume Broux in Belgian philately. GB Themes considers politicians, rarely commemorated on British stamps but a growing theme with hidden potential. In our news pages, you’ll find full details of Royal Mail’s new set celebrating the historic Voyage of Endeavour, and the threat to the future of Smilers sheets, as well as interesting new issues from around the world.
