My Articles and Presentations

I deeply enjoy sharing information on my philatelic interests. This site collates the articles I have written and presentations I have made.

This first article outlines the benefits of exhibiting and writing about your collection and I encourage everyone to take a crack at it. There are wonderful editors out there who are more than willing to assist you to get published in their journal.
