The British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS) recently published the 101st book in its ongoing exhibit series.
Entitled The Herb McNaught Single Frame Award Exhibits 2009-2017, the book illustrates the winning exhibits from each of the BNAPEX conventions from 2009-17. It was decided to put them in a single volume so philatelists can see the philatelic material they contain as well as how a successful single-frame exhibit is structured.
“With luck, other collectors will form single frame exhibits of their own, using these as examples,” said BNAPS Book Department Co-ordinator Mike Street, who added late collector Herbert Louis McNaught (1919-2008) joined BNAPS in 1992. “He first exhibited at BNAPEX 1994 in Burlington, VT, and followed this with exhibits in 1995, 1998, 2003, and 2005-2008. Three of his exhibits, The Half Cent Small Queen, The 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issue, and The 1908 Quebec Tercentenary Issue, were each published as a volume in the BNAPS Exhibit Series.”
After McNaught’s death in 2008, his family created the Herb McNaught Single Frame Exhibit Award, which is presented annually at BNAPEX to the best single-frame exhibit receiving silver or higher.
