Trams and Buses on Stamps: A Collector's Guide


Trams and Buses on Stamps is the fourth book in the Transport Philately Series by Howard Piltz. Due out 28th July 2021 from Pen & Sword, it's 120 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats. 

This is a colourful and comprehensive look at world stamps which depict scenes containing trams and buses. The guide is arranged by geographical region: British Isles, Europe, Mediterranean and Middle East, Asia, Oceania, and The Americas. Additionally, the author includes a fair bit of good general info for the budding philatelist on beginning and building a collection, finding types of stamps or areas on which to concentrate, and a good primer on storing and displaying a collection. 

Four stars. The writing is simple and understandable and would be appropriate for beginners in the hobby of all ages. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
