New Christmas stamps..





This year in Germany the Christmas stamps with an additional amount of cents are issued in favor of voluntary welfare. Over 40 years already a part of the profit from the sales of Christmas stamps goes to the Federal Association of Voluntary Welfare which helps the low-income people when the government aid is not enough.

The Christmas stamp features the chapel in Elmau/Oberbayern, which was built in the 18th century. The chapel is illustrated in the middle of dark snowy landscape and is illuminated by the bright shining of Christmas tree. This contrast refers to Jesus Christ, who by Christians is the "light of the world".



The Bulgarian Post has issued a festive stamp to celebrate Christmas 2012. The stamp features a stylized Christmas tree with garland and golden star at the top. One of the letters of the word "Êîëåäà" ("Christmas" in Bulgarian) is represented in a form of Christmas bauble.

Forthcoming Books on Philately ….


Year Book of Indian Philately  - 2012

Dear Friend,

It is a great pleasure to announce the publication of the 2012 edition of the “Year Book of Indian Philately” which is in the final stages of the preparations and is expected to be out by March 2013.

The Year Book has established itself as a solid publication on philately in general & on Indian Philately in particular, by virtue of the contents it carries year after year. Assemblage of sincere texts and articles on a spectrum of philatelic subjects with lasting impact & universal appeal has made the Year Book the publication, a must for every sincere philatelist’s library.

The recognition it has acclaimed at the International Philatelic Exhibitions is an undeniable proof of this fact. The Year Book has won a medal at every Philatelic Exhibition it has participated in so far !!! The latest are 2 in 2012, a Silver at the IPhLA 2012 in Germany, the World’s Largest Philatelic Literature Competition and another a Silver Bronze at Sharjah 2012, the 28th Asian International Stamp Exhibition. We wish to continue this legacy with the coming editions too, including the edition under discussion, the 2012 edition.

The ensuing 2012 edition also reflects the tradition of being serious, sincere & interesting. The issue contains articles on important subjects like “Indian P-Stamps / My Stamps”, “Bazaar Cards of India”, “Virtual Philately”, “Miniature Paintings in Philately”, “Global Philately” and also regular features recording events & issues for the concerning year. The list is tentative but chances are for expansion of it.

Like last year, we have designed a special opportunity for our philatelic professional friends for inclusion of their advertisement in this edition too. This opportunity eliminates the total “cost” of the advertisement published in the Year Book. It follows.

We will provide the advertiser, copies of the Year Book editions (any of his choice), worth equal to the value of the advertisement he provides (T&C applied). This translates into absolutely no spending on account of the advertisement published in the Year Book. The advertiser will have the opportunity to recover the entire cost of the advertisement by selling the copies allotted to him under this unique offer.

This arrangement makes the offer an un-deniable opportunity for the advertisers to advertise their services / products in this world class journal with a universal appeal. Your advertisement in the Year Book of Indian Philately will reach a large number of serious and capable segments of the Philatelic fraternity the world over and will be preserved as a ready reference for the times to come? In every sense of the word this is a unique & unparalleled opportunity for an advertiser of any reputed product or service, philatelic or otherwise.

We are sure you would not let this opportunity go. If you have any other query about this, please do not hesitate to mail.

Looking forward for a positive, encouraging and prompt response from your end.

Thanking you,


Madan Middha

Publisher / Editor
