Gibbons offers searchable new issue and topical database

International stamp dealer Stanley Gibbons has a searchable database of new issues and topicals on their website. Formerly known as Stamp Cafe, it's easy to use, has pictures of the stamps, and is supposedly up-to-date.

On the site Gibbons points out, "As many enthusiastic collectors will be aware, there is often a gap between the release of a new stamp issue and its publication in magazines and catalogues. The new issues area has been designed to address this problem."

For each stamp there is technical and background information. Surprisingly, there is no way (i.e. shopping cart) I could find to purchase a particular stamp, set, or series.
