Yearbook time

The 2008 Linn's U.S. Stamp Yearbook has just been published, and it is a spectacular reference for anyone who collects modern United States stamps. The annual yearbook is always one of my favorite reads, and we have the details in this month's newsletter.

We also have an article that celebrates birthdays — on stamps — and another that looks at the roles that dogs play in our lives.

Coming up in the December Scott Stamp Monthly is a fascinating feature about the oldest philatelic album known to man.

The stamp-issuing months for 2009 are winding down and soon we’ll be looking ahead to what’s coming up in 2010. Happy collecting!
