NEW:

"P H I L A T E L Y" - Collections of Stamps

New book series of specialized and famous collections of just one country or subject.

Each volume is presenting a professional collection, of which many have been shown and awarded at South Africa's National Stamp Exhibitions or internationally and could also be of interest for some other philatelists to have at home in book form, especially because they are rarely been exhibited again in public.

The first seventeen volumes have been published in 2018 and are available from our website as listed below. There will be more to come over the next years.

All books are available in A4 size, full colour excellent printing on 120g art paper and perfect bound if over 50 pages. Books under 50 pages will be saddle stitched.(Tibet and Danish West Indies).

"PHILATELY" will not be a periodical magazine and can not be subscribed. New issues will be announced on our two websites. At the moment we are planning ca 20 - 30 volumes of "PHILATELY" - Collections of Stamps.

In case you are the owner of an excellent collection and like to have it printed in book form, feel free to contact us for details.

Philatelic DVDs:

A few years ago we have produced a series of philatelic DVDs for stamp collectors.

Unfortunately this was not very successful and been ordered only in small numbers here and there. It looks like most philatelists prefer to look at stamps and information on printed pages in book form than on their TV sets or laptops.

That is why we decided to discontinue the DVD series and publish our new book series "PHILATELY" instead, some even with same or similar sucjects as before on DVD. (See at top of the page.)

We still keep a small and limited stock of the following DVDs and in case you are interested you can still order them at reduced prices.

1. Standard Bank of South Africa - R160.00

2. German Inflation 1923 - R120.00

3. 100 Years of Greenland Stamps - R140.00

4. 125 Years of Norway stamps - R140.00

5. Air Mail Stamps of South Africa - R160.00

All DVDs are in professional quality with a live introduction by the author and with classic music in the background. The DVDs can be played on any DVD player or on the disc drive in your PC or laptop.
