Virtual international stamp exhibition

Bret Janik of the Czech Republic has an interesting website that features non-competitive exhibits from around the world. It's called EXPONET and he's inviting collectors to send him an existing exhibit or put together a new one just for the site.

Janik says, "It is intended as a public display of high quality exhibits of all philatelic areas and time periods and all languages. The aim of the organizers of EXPONET is to provide a permanent presentation of high quality exhibits so as to facilitate on-line study for visitors throughout the world."

The virtual exhibits are displayed in the traditional 16 pages to a frame format. Many are in other languages besides English. Nonetheless it's interesting to see the stamps and how they are arranged.

If you always have wanted to try your hand at exhibiting, this may be just the thing to get you going. There's no pressure, you can display what interests you, and you're not competing against anyone else.

You can send your numbered pages in .tif or .jpg format on a CD to: Mr. Milan Cernik, P.O.Box 243, CZ - 160 41 Prague 6, Czech Republic.
