UChicago News: Stamp collection provides rare picture of North Korea

UChicago News: Stamp collection provides rare picture of North Korea. “A group of masked dancers, frozen in dramatic poses. A plane descending at an airport, with another trailing in the distance. And a pair of … carnivorous dinosaurs? These disparate images all can be found within the University of Chicago Library’s new collection of North Korean stamps, assembled in a public online database to provide a unique glimpse of the insular country. The stamps, which span from 1962 to 2018, capture a variety of scenes, settings and characters—ranging from explicit propaganda to traditional Korean garb to simple depictions of wildlife.”

Linn’s Stamp News: Linn’s digital archive grows, includes issues back to 2008

Linn’s Stamp News: Linn’s digital archive grows, includes issues back to 2008. “… the real highlight for me is the expansion of the digital archive (found by accessing your digital edition, clicking on the arrow at the top of the issue shown, and then clicking on the archive icon which is beside the magnifying glass). Previously this archive of issues of Linn’s Stamp News was from 2014 to date, now it goes back to 2008. We intend to add to that archive. Because Linn’s was founded in 1928, there are more than 90 years of content for us to eventually include as part of this new digital resource.”
