Philosateleian Post is pleased to announce its 2011 stamp program. Three new designs are planned for the coming year.
For the first time, Philosateleian Post will participate in World Local Post Day, which takes place each year on the last Monday of January. A stamp honoring the 100th anniversary of airmail will be issued on January 31.
Featuring a red, white, and blue background reminiscent of the airmail labels of yore, the stamp depicts a biplane built of LEGO bricks. Philosateleian Post’s proprietor and his wife designed and built the model.
As part of its ongoing commitment to commemorating scenic landscapes around the world, Philosateleian Post will on June 1 issue a stamp picturing sunset over the Guadalupe River in Texas.
The river, which runs some 230 miles from its source in Kerr County to the Gulf of Mexico, is popular for fishing, tubing, and canoeing.
Sarah & Kevin’s Wedding
Philosateleian Post’s final stamp of 2011 will be issued to commemorate the first anniversary of the proprietor and his wife. The stamp will be issued on September 19.
This stamp will be Philosateleian Post’s first to picture an identifiable person.
Collectors who wish to obtain first day cover service for any of Philosateleian Post’s 2011 stamps should mail their request and a self-addressed stamped envelope or postcard to the proprietor before the requested stamp’s date of issue. Individuals may also request mint singles for their collections.

I recently married my beautiful bride, Sarah, and with our official honeymoon over we’re getting settled in and getting back to work. That hasn’t left much time for stamps, but I did pick up some older landscape postcards during our travels that I’ll try to share with you this weekend.
I want to offer many thanks to Shirley C. for a very generous donation to help keep Philosateleia online and ad-free. Shirley’s the latest collector to offer financial support the work we’re doing here, and I’m deeply grateful for the assistance.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the 14¢ American Indian stamp. It’s mentioned in the “About the author” sidebar on this blog, there’s an entire archive section dedicated to it, and an image of the stamp is, of course, used in the header of the website.
