Barefoot publication

This is the standard illustrated priced catalogue for the British Commonwealth (all countries except the UK itself, which is a separate volume). Editions have come out roughly every six years. Our 10th edition has now sold out.

Countless additions were made through the whole range of countries from Abu Dhabi to Zululand, and the 10th edition grew from 410 to 502 pages. This is about the maximum size that can be easily produced for easy handling and for mailing (especially overseas, where mailing costs continue to leapfrog annually). So, we plan to update and add new items for a future edition of the main book, but also we may discontinue a few sections like wildlife stamps (Australia etc) and Pakistan detailed lists of annual printings of Arms and Transport licence stamps, which take up a lot of space.

Instead, we hope to produce an extra series of "work in progress" more specialised listings for smaller specific groups of countries (e.g. India/Pakistan, or West Indies), which will include reports on specimen and proof material, and embossed/imprinted document stamps, so that more advanced listings will also become available on a print-on-demand basis.

If you would like to be advised when the main book (or the specialised "work in progress" on-demand books) become available, just press the "more details" and then the "make enquiry" button and leave your contact details and collecting interest - we'll email you when the books arrive.
