Arago: Exhibits



Published in the UK, Stamp Magazine has been informing and entertaining philatelists around the world since 1934. And as part of our 75th anniversary celebrations we are delighted to have collaborate with the Smithsonian National Postal Museum on this online exhibit of British and British Empire stamps.

Stamp collecting has always been a worldwide hobby, with many collectors choosing to specialize in countries other than their own. Stamp Magazine congratulates the NPM on doing such a great job of introducing people through its Arago website to thousands of fascinating postage stamp and postal operations stories from around the world.
