    Collecting stamps was once so popular… now it has been replaced in a large part by networking. But how nice that it reminds us of cultural landmarks… and especially delightful when it recalls great literature. That was always a favorite of mine.

      Shimon,

      I remember collecting old stamps as a child. I remember soaking the paper with the stamp on in the water, and removed the stamps a few minutes afterwards. There was a time when touching stamps, reading hand-written letters and waiting for the bells on a postman’s bike were a big part of my life.

      These stamps are a credit to great literature.

      Tilly,

      You can always buy new stamps at the post office or online as they come out. But these stamps don’t sell for long normally. Today I bought the new Space Science presentation pack, which “celebrates Britain’s role in the exploration of space and marks the 50th anniversary of Ariel 1, the first British satellite”. Get this!? Good luck!
