Maps on Stamps by Steve Nadler.


Who doesn't love maps? Most of us grew up with a globe, world atlas or a road atlas of the U.S. in our household. And although most of us now use GPS to navigate us when traveling, there is still something special about actually holding a paper map in your hand. With Steve's upcoming presentation, we will be looking at maps in a much smaller format.
There are over 43,000 different postage stamps that are considered "maps on stamps". The program will cover examples of geography, history, propaganda, international politics, promotion of tourism, advertising, conflict, antique maps, territory expansion and celebrations. Examples from Afghanistan, Argentina, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, the Canal Zone, China, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Germany, England (Isle of Wight), Monaco, Palestine (the Interim Period), Sweden and the USA will be included.
