  Stamp collecting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A philatelist often does, but need not, collect the objects of study, nor is it necessary to closely study what one collects.
The first cacheted FDC was produced by prominent philatelist and cachetmaker George W. Linn in 1923, for the Harding Memorial stamp issue.
Cachetmaking is considered an art form, and cachets may be produced by using any number of methods, including drawing or painting directly onto the envelope, serigraphy, block printing, lithography, engraving, laser printing, attachment of photographs or other paper memorabilia, etc..

 Chances are you're already a philatelist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The word comes from the same roots as the word "philately" (pronounced "fih-LAT-ul-ee"), which was created in the 1860s by a French stamp collector named Georges Herpin to describe the hobby of stamp collecting.
Some collectors think that the word "philatelist" has come to mean a more advanced stamp collector.
The word "philatelist" is useful in that it includes the postal historian, where the term "stamp collector" seems to exclude the collector whose interest is covers rather than stamps alone.

 Married to a Philatelist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Being married to a philatelist means that when you go on your honeymoon, you have to visit the post office in each town for a cancellation, and you stop at all the stamp stores in search of first day cover for that city.
At a yard sale or a flea market, nothing makes my philatelist happier than to find a shabby-looking book or box of old stamps where the seller is unaware of what a treasure he is practically “giving away”.
The philatelist’s mailman is overburdened as the mail in and out of his house is abundant.

 The Cuban Philatelist (English Page)
In total, 23 issues of the journal were published under the name The Cuban Philatelist on a quarterly basis, each volume consisting of four issues numbered 1-4 corresponding to the months of July, October, January, and April.
As mentioned in the preceding paragraph, at the beginning of 1989, The Cuban Philatelist was brought back to life as the literary journal of the Society by Silvia García-Frutos and El Boletín was dedicated to philatelic auctions and Society news, announcements, and advertisements.
The Cuban Philatelist's goal should be to stimulate and promote the exchange of ideas about Cuba's philately and we plan to make this publication an open forum for the discussion of any subject that could be of interest to our members.

The author purchased a sandalwood box of stamps from a pawnshop in Macao "when American guns were first being heard in Viet Nam," and over the ensuing years he has woven one tale after another using these stamps as his inspiration.

 American Topical Association - Seniors
By the age of 50, most philatelists have a good idea of what really interests them and are looking for creative outlets to educate themselves in their interests and enjoy doing something that has an inherent, personal appeal.
Recent surveys by several stamp-collecting newspapers show that the average collector is a male, aged 62 to 63 with a college degree or higher education.
A philatelist studies either the stamps and their usage or, in the case of topicalists, the subject matter on the stamp.

 The Cinderella Philatelist
Now, what is perhaps a new genre or sub-genre Cinderella philatelic fiction, has emerged: a fictitious story based upon Cinderellas of a local issue.
The Cinderella Philatelist is priviledged in being able to reproduce from Dr. Frederick Highland's book, obviously directed to a wide circle of readers, The Mystery Box, a chapter, namely, "The Fallen Vicar" founded broadly on the veritable 1954 issue of Lundy.
Remembering that the chapter is fiction, Cinderella cognoscenti readers have to be prepared for references to the island having a resident police force, a population of some 602, a town of Marisco and to the absence in "any" catalogue of the listing of Lundy stamps.
