A History of Great Britain in 36 Postage Stamps
Now you can watch as the author of “A History of Britain in Thirty-six Postage Stamps” explores his country’s history through its most fascinating, beautiful, and eccentric postage stamps. From Queen Victoria’s Penny Black to the struggles of post-World War II reconstruction, West shows that stamps mirror the events, attitudes, and styles of their time.
West delivered his presentation at the 2013 Maynard Sundman lecture at the National Postal Museum. To watch the video, click here.
