Year wrap up

As the year comes to a close, we look back at the many new United States stamp designs from 2011, and invite you to let us know what you think of them. The Linn's 2011 U.S. Stamp Popularity Poll has opened for voting online and by mail.

Many new U.S. stamps will be issued in January, but the details of what's coming and when are slim so far.

Our special features this month include a look at nondenominated worldwide Christmas stamps, a celebration of stamp engraver Czeslaw Slania, and information about the new Scott United States Pocket Stamp Catalogue.

Happy collecting!

Truth be told, the new 2012 Scott United States Pocket Stamp Catalogue has almost outgrown its name. Though it might not fit into any pockets that you have, it still slips easily into a briefcase or satchel, and you can carry it with you to a stamp club meeting or around a stamp show floor.
