The latest quarterly Philatelic Literature Review, published by the American Philatelic Research Library (APRL), features three books from two prominent Canadian philatelists, both of them members of the Philatelic Specialists Society of Canada (PSSC).
The books in the issue (#276, third quarter 2022) include Michel Houde’s award-winning British Consulate Post Office at Bangkok 1855 to 1885 plus David Piercey’s The Edge of Philately and Let’s Talk Exhibiting. Houde’s book, published in 2021, won the PSSC’s Herbert Dubé Lectureship Award and the Hong Kong Study Circle’s Webb Cup.
Piercey’s The Edge of Philately: Philatelic Specialists Look at Non-Traditional Philately and Its Ephemera, also published in 2021, highlights the “material on the peripheral boundaries of the stamp hobby,” according to the Philatelic Literature Review.
His other book, released this June at CAPEX 22, illustrates and explains different award-winning exhibits by Canadian exhibitors with each chapter focusing on a specific exhibiting topic.
“No matter what you might want to exhibit, there’s probably something there that you can use for your own exhibit development,” Piercey told CSN earlier this year.
