History of the World in Stamps by Laurent Lemerle
Book DescriptionLaurent Lemerle became a stamp collector after he discovered, in the attic of his family's home, an album that was put together by his father during World War II. Today, he owns over 10,000 stamps published during the 20th century that come from every country in the world. "Stamps of the World" includes the most beautiful pieces in his collection under various themes such as "The Wonders of Nature," "Traditional Dances," "Knights," or "The Space Conquest." It shows how each culture illustrates its major historical events as well as actions of daily life. Stamps are exceptional witnesses of the image that each administration has intended to give its country. To collect stamps is to discover humanity in looking at the history, customs, characteristics of each country and to understand, by comparing, the vision that different countries can have on the same subject. Readers will find in "Stamps of the World" a reflection on stamps as a tool for reading the world, past and present, as well as the pleasure of discovering many rare pieces that will, perhaps, inspire them to start a collection on a theme of their choice.
