A permanent online exhibit of every stamp, black print, first day cover including sketches, drafts, and more, along with the story behind them.

By presenting drafts, sketches and proofs, you can see how different stamps were taken from an idea to a finished product. Artist, engraver and printer all work together to make a gorgeous stamp – and this is how they do it.

Some things there are only one of and for others you can search a lifetime. You can find many of them in the rarities section.

Each stamp, its date of issue and the respective Scott and Michel numbers make it easier to hunt down those missing pieces. Download it or check your collection against it.
