Collecting joint and omnibus issues

Finding different subjects to focus on in stamp collecting is easy. This month's newsletter, for example, considers collecting joint issues and omnibus issues (multiple nations issuing stamps with a common theme), and even suggests pirates for a topical collection.

We also have details about new U.S. stamps for October, including the latest in the Nature of America series, a favorite of mine.

And the upcoming November issue of Scott Stamp Monthly offers more great stamp information and features for collectors, including an article about saving the Earth.
