Franklin Roosevelt’s Postage Stamp Quilt

"A new book tells the story of Estella Weaver Nukes and the special quilt she made for stamp collecting President Franklin Roosevelt," according to a write-up on The American Philatelic Research Library (APRL)'s blog.

Author and quilt historian Kyra E. Hicks told APRL Librarian Tara Murray that she had no idea of Roosevelt’s passion for philately until she started researching Franklin Roosevelt’s Postage Stamp Quilt: The Story of Estella Weaver Nukes’ Presidential Gift. 

The 44-page full-color paperback is available from for $12.95.
