The Philatelic Database has named the BPMA blog as one of its Top 10 Stamp Blogs. The Philatelic Database is the leading online resource for philatelists, stamp collectors and postal historians. It features articles by eminent philatelists and specialists in their fields. The site is a veritable cornucopia of philatelic knowledge where you will also find maps, videos, crosswords, dictionaries and directories.
After only two and half months blogging we’re thrilled to appear on this list alongside several blogs we enjoy, like Keijo Kortelainen’s Stamp Collecting Blog and Don Schilling’s Stamp Collecting Round-Up, as well as a number we haven’t heard of but will start reading.
This blog is written by BPMA staff and guest contributors and we’ve got plenty of exciting articles coming up. Over the next week or so we’ll have more on the proposed New Centre for the BPMA in Swindon, an update on The Wilkinson Collection, another article on GPO posters, and in celebration of the release next week of stamps celebrating the 250th Anniversary of Kew Gardens we’ll take a look at a previous stamp issue featuring Kew Gardens and show some artwork by renowned British stamp designer David Gentleman which has never been seen before. Stay tuned!
