I think I can honestly say that all the history trivia I know has come from researching stamps! These miniature works of art carry fascination and are learning tools second to none!
Regrettably I’m old enough to remember the good old days when there were very few stamp issues – and minisheets and Prestige Stamps Books just didn’t exist! But having said that, the range of different subjects celebrated by stamps continues to enthrall as you will see from the programme for this year shown below!
A minisheet is a commemorative issue which is smaller than a regular sheet, however is has one more stamp. Minisheets typically have a decorative border and several different stamps.
