Korean Philately Vol. 54 No. 1 (Q1 2020)

Individual issues

For the first time in 7 years the KSS has published a new edition of the KSS magazine, Korean Philately. Our magazine has been published since 1952, first simply as a few typed and copied sheets but later on as an A5 (booklet) sized magazine and more recently as a US Letter sized magazine. This edition of KP has a range of articles and can be downloaded for free by KSS members from the KSS website. But there is more news: you can own a full-colour magazine-style printed hard-copy version of this KP!

How to download?

This edition of Korean Philately can, just like all previous editions/issues, be downloaded from the KSS website. In case you just can’t wait to download it, here is the direct download link for you as a member:

Want to own a printed version? Buy one online!

The KP used to be sent to KSS members as part of their membership. Given present day costs of printing and sending hard-copy editions of magazines and books this would not be a viable option any longer. This is especially true because of the the fact that KSS membership is currently 100% for free.

If you would like to order a printed copy, you can find the two print versions of Korean Philately magazine on the KSS profile at Blurb.com:

  1. I was delighted to see that a new edition of Korean Philately has been released! Many thanks to all involved. I always like printed copies of journals if possible, so I took the plunge so to speak and ordered a printed copy. The publisher offers two versions, so I decided to pursue the more expensive version just to see the result. It was, quite simply, outstanding!

    It came back as “perfect bound” and the printing quality was unexcelled. Shipment was made in a protective shell so that damage in transit could be avoided. Indeed, this edition is virtually a standalone stamp publication. I might order the other version to see if it more closely manages prior editions of Korean Philately.

    I know we all find electronic editions of publications extremely useful, but this printed version certainly harkens back to earlier times and I can only hope there are more issues released and that they get entered in APS literature competitions!

  2. Hi Bill, thanks for the compliment. It is nice, isn’t it, in the hard copy version. It is all due to the commitment of Ivo to get a hard copy published of the KP. He did all the hard work and deserves all the credit. Robert

  3. The printing by Blurb is indeed excellent. However, I can not recommend the “economy” version. Next time we won’t do that again. The price difference is small, but the difference in quality is noticeable, therefore it simply isn’t worth the small discount.

    With both the PDF and the Blurb printed-on-demand versions members can now choose there preferred method of reading Korean Philately magazine!
