Philately is the new (Penny) black

“Czech glass, Doctor Who memorabilia and vintage fashion are all on the up, as is stamp collecting. That’s right, in 2010, philately is the new (Penny) black.”

London 2010: Festival of Stamps logoSo says the current edition of BBC Homes & Antiques magazine, and who are we to argue? 2010, of course, is when London 2010: Festival of Stamps will take place – a year long celebration of stamps, stamp design and postal heritage.

London 2010: Festival of Stamps is more than a stamp show, there will be exhibitions, talks, walking tours and events of interest to everyone, from the stamp collecting novice to the hardcore philatelist.

This blog will soon publish a full rundown of events planned for London 2010: Festival of Stamps, but in the meantime have a look at the festival’s all new website – http://www.london2010.org.uk/.
