Issue information

From cattle to cartoonists, The New Zealand Collection 1997 included a fascinating array of subjects. You could visit Mt Ruapehu, get a taste from our vineyards, see the work of a famous New Zealand artist and a whole lot more.

Beautifully Produced

You could see the quality from the moment you first picked up this album. The whole feel and look of the volume radiated the care that has been taken to produce a showcase work.

From the outside, the firm cover and permanent binding were the first hints that this was an album to keep and treasure.

Inside, the selected typefaces, the layout, text and accompanying graphics had been carefully designed to exhibit the stamps in all their glory, yet provide you with details you could return to and pore over, time and time again.
