Dear friends in philately,

We proudly announce the first participation in NOTOS 2021 Court of Honour: On 6 February, the Philatelic and Postal Museum, Athens, sent us their written confirmation to our invitation to attend with the exhibit we had requested: the seven printing plates of the Large Hermes Heads of 1861, the first Greek stamps ever issued. It will be the first time that the “Magnificent Seven” will be presented to the public together.

A special webpage dedicated to the seven printing plates, which includes an outline of their story along with their photos, is uploaded on the exhibition website (here). Thus, the visitors to the website have the opportunity to enjoy the masterpieces of the French engraver Désiré-Albert Barre.

Friends of NOTOS 2021, we are asking you to visit the exhibition website (hps.gr/notos2021) frequently. There are a lot of pleasant surprises coming up.

Also, feel free to contact us at any time at notos2021@hps.gr.
