About Philosateleia

Philosateleia provides free U.S. stamp album pages for collectors, plus information and news about stamps and stamp collecting.

A brief history

The domain was registered in August 2002. For its first 3½ years of operation, Philosateleia served primarily as an image gallery for items in the editor’s personal collection.

At the beginning of 2006, Philosateleia began offering The Philosateleian U.S. Stamp Album free to collectors around the world. The album is updated four times per year.

Philosateleia also encompasses Philosateleian Post, a private local post which issues several new “stamps” each year.

You can join other collectors who have chosen to support Philosateleia through donations of cash, stamps, and covers.

What does Philosateleia mean?

Philosateleia is a combination of two Greek words, philos (loving) and ateleia (exemption from tax). The term philately, which refers to the collection and study of postage stamps, is derived from those two words.
