October is Stamp Collecting Month

We don't know who decided this, but it's a classic hobby

This is our drawer of miscellaneous stamps from heaven knows where!

We don't really collect stamps, but somewhere along the line –probably in a group of other ephemera – we acquired a miscellaneous bunch.

We can understand the appeal of stamp collecting. Many of them are beautiful, there is history involved in them, some of them are very valuable, and it is a kind of way of traveling to other cultures to look at what they have put on their stamps.

The Cover of a Stamp Album for Children

The endpapers of the album have this map, to help the stamp teach children geography. Seems like a good idea.
