The April issue of Stamp Magazine, on sale from March 14, includes these great features:

Canada 1967-73 Centennial series

They were contemporaries of Great Britain’s Machin definitives, with a comparable number of varieties but more interesting designs. We get under the skin of the complex Centennials

Royal Philatelic Society London

The world’s oldest stamp club has come a long way in 150 years, leading the development of the  hobby in myriad ways. It has bold plans for the future, too

Local stamps of Herm Island

Amongst the most attractive of Britain’s local carriage labels are those of a small island off Guernsey, with collectable essays, colour trials, errors and covers adding to the fun

Commonwealth Classics

The first issue of the British Virgin Islands, in 1866, was a joint effort between two London printers

Great Engravers

Piotr Naszarkowski was born in Poland but thrived in Sweden, shadowing Czeslaw Slania

GB Themes

Fashion stamps are not exactly all the rage, yet all kinds of special issues do reflect historic trends
