IBRA News 13.04.2023 – „Deutsche Philatelie gestern – heute“

(mm-pcp) Under this title, a so-called showcase exhibit by Wolfgang Maassen will be on display in the Philately Centre at IBRA 2023, presenting on 80 pages (format: 21 cm x 21 cm) covers and documents of various kinds “on the first collectors, dealers, clubs and associations up to the Federation of German Philatelists” (as the subtitle goes). There will be a special edition of this exhibit, which is certainly unique in its kind, in square book form, numbered and signed by the author, produced in an edition of only 48 copies and available – if still available – at the IBRA stand in the so-called Zentrum Philatelie. The hardcover book has 84 pages, as only the inside title, imprint and foreword are added here. It is expected to cost about 35 Euros. Pre-orders to the author are possible (W.Maassen[at]philcreativ.de), but they will only be delivered after IBRA. Alternatively, it is also possible to take the book with you to the Philately Centre during IBRA or to purchase it if there are still copies available.
