February 2007

Well, here we are at the end of 2007. When the year began, I was fully resolved at being caught up by tht end of the year. Obviously, I havenít made it. With this new job and the incredible amount of traveling involved, I am still behind. This issue will be to the publisherís before Christmas, and I hope to have May, 2007 to the publisher by the New Year. That will still leave me two issues behind, and I can t get those done without more material. Please authors, send me your material so I can really hope to get caught up.

PHILAKOREA 2009 - Make your plans now! I have just read that the dates have been set, to be held in Seoul beginning July 30, 2009. Wouldnít it be great for KSS to be well represented at this exhibition? Iím making plans now to try to be in attendance!

On-line Korea Stamp Postal Service - There is a wonderful new resource available for those interested in Korean philately. The Korean government has opened what they are calling a Korea stamp portal service. It is available at www.koreastamp.go.kr. This service provides historical information about Korean stamps, new issue service, sales of Korean stamps by individuals and dealers around the world, stories related to Korean stamps, and access to all issues of Korean Stamp Review, making the listing of contents in the Library Column even more meaningful to our readers. If you see a topic that is of interest to you in the listing, you can now go to this portal and check out the article. This is a major step forward for Korean philately and will provide tremendous support for the growth of the collecting of Korean stamps. It will also answer the many questions we get about how to purchase Korean new issue stamps. If you donít want to do a deposit, hereís a way to order your stamps easily. Iíd love to hear observations and experiences of others using the portal. KP
