Philatelic Collection

Web log entry

A selection from the museum's extensive collection of worldwide postage stamps, issued by over 600 distinct kingdoms, republics, principalities, territories, colonies, and other postal administrative units, past and present, as well bogus and entirely imaginary places. The museum's collecting philosophy has been based on aesthetic and curiosity value rather than rarity or philatelic legitimacy.
