Introduction

What is this site about? I've been a stamp collector off and on since the early 1970s. As a child I collected worldwide material up to 1940. My collecting went on hiatus for a few decades until I picked it up again about 10 years ago, at which point I decided to focus on Civil War-era U.S. revenue stamps (you can see my collection at revenue-collector.com). As with most things, I'm getting a little burnt out on that for the moment, so I'm spending some time on a little diversion.

I remember stumbling across a packet of Indonesian stamps and was immediately struck by the aesthetics of the Vienna printings of 1947-49. I love the art deco designs. At the time I was flustered by the fact that they weren't listed in the Scott Catalogue (since remedied) and started doing some research on their unusual story...
