blast from the past 1

Column by Paulo Alcazaren talks about "Stamps of the Philippines: Historical and Topical Collections 1854-2004".


The book was written by Lisa Mapua and edited by Mimi de Jesus.

Here's what the columnist says about the hobby:

"Stamp collecting may start as a childhood hobby but it can lead to a lifetime of discovery and enjoyment. I started a stamp collection before I hit my teens. My father traveled widely and sent us postcards. One of my siblings collected the postcards; another collected the matchbooks my dad also picked up in Europe or the States (he stopped smoking decades later). I collected the stamps."
