    One of my favorite painters (Whom many may not know) is Finland's Symbolist
    HUGO SIMBURG (1873-1917). His work was honored in a small booklet of Semi-Postal stamps 9/24/1999 'Pro Filatelia' & can be purchased for 3-5$.
    Although not collecting Finland's stamps, I do have a framed copy of his painting 'Wounded Angel' hanging in my small kitchen area. If any other members have favorite Booklet Stamps I'm sure we would enjoy seeing them. (The other painting in this booklet is titled: 'Death's Garden'
    Greetings to James & Werner,

    Death's Garden! Sounds a little grim. The art work is attractive, however.

    H.G.

    Booklet panes have never been a favorite collecting format, but I did add quite a few of them when I was still collecting U.S. stamps. Of those issued, I consider the 1928 Lindbergh airmail pane of three (Sc. C10a) as my favorite. Collecting them with the tab attached seems to be the preferred way, but it became more difficult to do when the Post Office Dept. started gluing the tabs to the booklet instead of stapling them.

    Below is my page featuring the C10a and a page of more contemporary booklet issued in the 1980s.

    Thanks Don,
    I enjoyed seeing both your Airmail & mixed Transport pages.
    Perhaps the fact that Stamp Booklets are difficult to display unless 'exploded', has effected their popularity.(?)
    A little off-topic but were you able to acquire any of Canada's HooDoo Error sheets? I was not interested in the self adhesive variety but was able to purchased 3 of the old fashioned gummed sheets.
    Best Regards,
    Harry

    brenan2.jpg Very nice, Werner,
    Thanks for the contribution.
    If your time permits, you might look at Iceland's 1994 issue (Scott #780-81) 'Voyages of St. Brendan ' These came out in both souvenir sheets and booklets. (If I were not so lazy I'd attach a scan..LOL!)
    Well, I got up and did the scan anyway.
    Cheers,
    H

    The undenominated labels to the left and right of the stamps, especially the front of the boat and the one with the bird, are going to be showing up on stamp collecting forums in the future asking if they are cinderellas, postage stamps, or what.

    Nice colors in that St. Brendan stamps!

    While I was straightening my desk I found another interesting booklet
    from Finland. I don't recall how I came across this but I was able to get in touch with the stamps designer Harri Granholm. At that time he was graduating from The University of Finland's Design School and had entered
    & won the prize for this 'FRIENDSHIP' stamp design. We eMailed a few times and I had planned on mailing the 3 booklets I bought to him for his signature...but like most of my plans, I never got around to it (As DJT sez:
    "Sad")
    I believe most will agree the design is a winner.
    Cheers,

    The covers of contemporary booklets are often as attractive or as interesting as the stamps within.

    Hi Werner, Don,
    Can't help but wonder if other European countries used this design?

    On May 3rd,1990 Ireland issued a "prestige-booklet",
    commemorating the 150th Anniversary of postage stamps.
    1840 Ireland was under british rule,so the Penny Black,the first stamp worldwide,was also the first stamp for Ireland.
    Prestige booklets have little postal purpose,but are made for
    collectors only.
    This booklet contained 4 panes with the following stamps in different numbers,some partially imperforted:
    the two commemorative stamps issued on the same day for
    the occasion of the stamp-anniversary and several defintives.
    Of the 1982 architecture series the 4 P.,26 P.and 30 P. values.
    Of the 1990 art-treasures series the 26 P. and 30 P.
    However the definitives were different from the ones,issued
    sets: they were of larger size (not the design,but stamp as such)
    paper and gum were different and they were perforated 13
    (Scott lists as 13,5 x 13 or 13,5)
    instead of 14,5 x 15 (architecture) and 14 x 15 (art treasures).
    Or the other way around for upright designs.
    Later An Post issued on of the booklet-panes overprinted:
    Eire3.jpg
    From London 1990 to New Zealand 1990 + emblem

    Most collectors were not aware of this issue before it was sold out.
    So it has become rather expensive later,but still moderate.

    Another booklet pane,converted to a souvenir sheet was issued
    in 1996.
