MY BOOK 'DINOSAURS AND OTHER PREHISTORIC ANIMALS ON STAMPS' WINS AN AWARD!



Today I received a most unexpected but very welcome, pleasant surprise. At the 13th New Zealand National Philatelic Literature Exhibition, held on 16 March 2013 at the Manawatu Philatelic Society in Palmerston North, my book Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Animals on Stamps: A Worldwide Catalogue (CFZ Press: Bideford, 2008) was awarded a certificate in the highly-prized Large Silver category, in recognition of its significant contribution to philatelic literature. And today I received the certificate in the post from the Society. Here it is:

True, they did spell my name incorrectly, but hey, it's the thought that counts! So, many thanks indeed to the judges for deeming my book worthy of such recognition - I am exceedingly grateful.

For full details concerning my book, which also contains an appendix devoted to cryptozoology-themed stamps, click here.

  1. Congratulations! A great book. Philip R. "Pib" Burns' interest in cryptozoology on stamps and your book were the inspirations for us to have a small (but hopefully growing) collection of cz stamps at the International Cryptozoology Museum. Good show, Karl.

  4. Hi Romina, When you open the book, the first right-hand page should be a b/w full-page picture of the front cover, the next right-hand page should be the Dedication, the next right-hand page (numbered as 5) should be the List of Contents, and the next right-hand page (numbered as 7) should be the Introduction. If those pages are not in your copy, inform the bookseller you purchased it from, and request a complete copy. Thanks very much, Karl

  6. Interesting book, pity there are only few stamp images, mostly black-white. Any plans to issue an update ?

    Here is my website about Paleontology and its representation in Philately: http://www.paleophilatelie.eu

    Perhaps it can be interesting for people who collects prehistoric animals on stamp.

    best regards, PaleoPhilatelist
