Philatelic Tips
Collecting to philatelic topic is something like composing mosaic. You gather available postal issues like stamps (mint or used), special cancels (not ordinary postmarks), special stationery (covers, postcards etc.) and arrange them in way you have predetermined to illustrate a chosen theme. The theme is limited only by imagination. For example: “History of photography”, “Evolution of photographic camera”, “Famous photographers”, “Great photographs” etc. The ‘mosaic’ is never finally completed, there are always new items being issued that may fill another void. It requires permanent searching, changes and updating.

Glossary term:
Topicals: Indicates a group of philatelic items like stamps, special cancels, stationery etc. with the same theme, for example – cinema, photography, actors, theatre, flowers etc.
