Recommended Books For Stamp Collectors

Gary Eggleston, BellaOnline's stamps editor, writes on the site, "Stamp collecting is an enriching hobby because it has educational and cultural value. In about six months, you will have learned about countries and special events, and a lot about the stamp collecting industry as well. You will probably meet a lot of interesting fellow stamp collectors with whom you can swap notes and news."

He goes on to say, "Stamp collectors, however, must try to gain knowledge continuously by reading and by joining clubs and seminars and talking to as many stamp dealers as possible so that they get a flavor of the current market news."

He then goes on to list several books about stamps and stamp collecting that he feels would be beneficial for both beginning and advanced collectors.

At the top of his list is Wayne Youngblood's All About Stamps: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Philatelic Terms.
