To celebrate their 15th anniversary in 2008, the National Post Museum is planning an exhibition called, Alphabetilately this summer.

Alphabetilately is a combination of "Alphabet" and "Philately."

According to the museum's website, "Alphabetilately will be a universally appealing exhibition and a lively educational experience for visitors of every age. It will also provide an extraordinary showcase for selections from our unparalleled collection of American postal and philatelic history."

Each of the 26 letters stands for some aspect of the collecting of stamps or the sending of mail. The stamps, ephemera, and artifacts exhibited in Alphabetilately will graphically document the spectrum of the American experience, from historical subjects to popular culture, from actual events to important ideas.

To see what the museum has in mind and to learn about sponsorship opportunities (for $1500 you can sponsor a letter), click here.

There is currently (and has been since 1998) a website, which was created by Bill Senkus of Walnut Creek, Calif.
