The American Philatelist
The American Philatelist, distributed by the
American Philatelic Society, is one of the world's most
established philatelic magazines still in activity; its first
issue having showed up in January 1887.
The magazine is distributed month to month for individuals
from the APS. It resembles a standard lustrous shading
magazine, regularly running around 100 pages for each issue.
As the house organ, there are month to month divisions
covering APS news and exercises, a president's segment, etc.
The center of the magazine comprises of 5-10 articles on
subjects identified with philately, going from profoundly
specialized subjects, for example, "Accra overprints on Gold
Coast stamps", to the anecdotal stamps and envelopes that have
been utilized as film props.
Other customary divisions incorporate "The Glassine Surfer", a
segment exploring on the web assets for authorities, book
surveys, and U.S. new issues. The magazine takes both
presentation publicizing and characterized promoting.
Australian Stamps Professional Magazine was
started 10 years ago in 2008 by John Leah when he saw a need
in the marketplace for a ‘high end’ philatelic magazine but
also one that had a broader appeal. “ASP” with it’s blend of
philately and history has proven a winning combination
covering the historical events behind the stamps. Readership
quickly grew and the dealers followed, excited by such an
exciting new philatelic magazine and a way for them to reach
potential customers. With reasonably priced advertising it has
just kept growing. They are now the leading philatelic
magazine in the Southern Hemisphere with a growing readership
Australian Stamps Professional Magazine has a unique blend of
specialist writers covering KGV by Dr. Scott Starling,
Kangaroo and Map by Peter van Meurs, Wreck and Interrupted
Mail by Brian Peace FRPSL and many more, as well as technical
aspects of collecting such as varieties and flaws, making this
a ‘must read’ philatelic magazine for collectors and dealers
The Collectors Club Philatelist, published
bi-monthly since 1922, is one of the most scholarly
publications in all of philately. The CCP attracts authors
from all over the world and continues to motivate and inform
readers on a wide variety of philatelic subjects and events

Gibbons Stamp Monthly is a magazine that lists
new issues and publishes articles of interest to philatelists.
Gibbons have published a number of journals over the years but
only settled on Gibbons Stamp Monthly as their core magazine
In 1890 Charles James Phillips bought the
business of Stanley Gibbons. Phillips was already producing
and editing a philatelic journal called The Stamp Advertiser
and Auction Record but that was soon replaced with the new
Gibbons Monthly Journal.
In 1905 a new magazine was introduced, Gibbons Stamp Weekly,
and in June 1908 the Journal was discontinued. However,
producing a quality weekly magazine was too much, and in
December 1910 the Weekly ceased and Gibbons Monthly Journal
returned from January 1911 until it ceased with the outbreak
of war in 1914.
Stanley Gibbons did not produce a journal during the First
World War, but in September 1919 Stanley Gibbons Monthly
Circular was introduced, which lasted for 49 issues. In
October 1923 Stanley Gibbons Monthly Journal returned once
again. The new Journal lasted until September 1927 when it was
replaced by Gibbons Stamp Monthly from October 1927.
The first all-colour cover was introduced in September 1963,
and in 1967 an American sister journal was introduced named
the Gibbons-Whitman Stamp Monthly but this ceased in 1969.
In June 1970 the word Gibbons was dropped from the title so
that it became just Stamp Monthly but the old name was
reinstated in June 1977. Apart from minor changes the magazine
has continued in the same format since then.
