About Me

Philologist in the streets, philatelist in the sheets.

The souvenir sheets, of course.

My name is Penny and, like so many of us, I started stamp collecting as a child, mainly by steaming definitives off my parents’ mail.

That stamp album was, I think, lost in a fire…or maybe thrown out by someone who didn’t appreciate the value of battered 2nd class stamps.

In early 2019 my interest was piqued once more, and I started my adult collection. I’m no expert, but I’m fascinated by the people and events depicted: the story behind the stamp.

My main collecting interests are Albania (country-wise) and biblical, Eurovision, Esperanto, and alphabet-related stamps (theme-wise).

If you got bingo on that row of five, congratulations! But seriously, contact me. We should be friends.

Don’t forget to join me on Instagram and Twitter for my #stampoftheday!
