New Book on stamps
In the modern world postage stamps are as ubiquitous as bank notes. The general public hardly knows about the designing and production of stamps.
A Stamp Is Born aims to fill this void. This is probably one of India’s first authoritative book on stamp designing.
The author, C R Pakrashi describes his first-hand experience with all stages of production of the stamp, right from conception to final execution and printing. He steadfastly focuses on designing which plays the most vital and important role in the entire process.
The book also gives a graphic account of history and evolution of postage stamps in the world in general and in India in particular. Simultaneously he offers a glimpse into the glorious chapters of Indian history.
The book will be of interest not only to philatelists, but also to public at large as well as students and historians
