Mystery Booklet

Booklets Q&A

(Originally from KP May 2012, Vol. 54, No. 2) On this page is another mystery booklet. On the cover (Figure 2a) next to the cathedral and under the Korean writing, are the words: “Centennial Anniversary of Special Envoy to the Hague.” On the back of the cover (Figure 2d) in the lower left is the “MINISTRY OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION REPUBLIC OF KOREA” logo and Korean and English wording.

Figure 2b: “Centennial Anniversary of Special Envoy to the Hague” booklet
Figure 2c: “Centennial Anniversary of Special Envoy to the Hague” booklet
Figure 2d: “Centennial Anniversary of Special Envoy to the Hague” booklet

Inside is all in Korean (Figures 2b & 2c) with four of the “Centennial Anniversary of Special Envoy to the Hague” stamps (KPC 2566, Scott 2255) attached. It looks official (just like the PHILAKOREA booklet did) but no indication that one was prepared. Any ideas?

Looks official to me; it is too artistically/professionally constructed for someone to pump-out only 10.

Postscript 2018
This stamp is available online on the KoreaPost website, by searching for it using the KPC number (2566) mentioned by Stew Steres. This turns up this stamp and sheet which were printed by KOMSCO / 한국조폐공사 and published by KoreaPost on 27 June 2007:

It is obvious the strip of 4 stamps in the souvenir booklet is the bottom strip from the sheet.

Here is also the (Korean) information leaflet:
