Publishers of some philatelic magazines are facing the problem that their production facilities are closed for an indefinite period due to the coronavirus lockdown. So some of them have made their April issues available free online to their readers and to the philatelic community in general.
The following journals are available to read:
L’Écho de la Timbrologie (French) https://t.co/eGLmG4ZmWO?amp=1
L’Arte del Francobollo (Italian) https://bit.ly/2R3m2TP
El Eco Filatelico (Spanish)
Journal of the Archivio per la Storia Postale in Prato (Italian). https://bit.ly/3e7qBGN
Fil-It (Journal of the Italy and Colonies Study Circle) (English) https://bit.ly/2S9nbd1
Also available are:
Stamp Collector (English) is still printing its monthly magazine but as a gesture of goodwill in the current crisis it is also making its May issue available to collectors free on the internet. To find it go to https://www.allaboutstamps.co.uk/news/keeping-you-collecting-read-stamp-collector-for-free/
Stamp Collector is also offering a range of other options for collectors – have a look at the attached press release.
The American Philatelist (digital version) is free to all readers during the COVID-19 crisis. Go to: https://stamps.org/the-american-philatelist.
You will then need to create a free account registration.
Have a look also at the APS’s stamps.org website has a lot of great free philatelic content.
In addition, some philatelic federations may offer additional reading on their websites. These are listed under “FEPA Family”. Several have exhibits that may be downloadable.
Let us know if you have a journal that is free to all readers and we will add it to this post.
