Links to Other Sites of Graphics Philately Interest
Website for the American Philatelic Society (APS).  With 50,000+ members in more than
110 countries, the APS is the largest, nonprofit society in the world for stamp collectors. It is
supported entirely by membership dues, gifts, and the sale of its publications and services.
Founded in 1886, the APS is now in its second century of service to stamp collectors and
postal historians.
Website for the American Topical Association.  Topical, or thematic, stamp collecting is the
fastest-growing arm of the stamp-collecting hobby today.  The American Topical Association
serves members in 90 countries. It is the largest philatelic society devoted to a specific
phase of stamp collecting. Organized in 1949, the ATA has over 50 years of service to its
members. The ATA is the best source of information, fellowship and inspiration in the
topical field.
Website for the Old World Archaeological Study Unit, which is a thematic stamp collecting
group that collects and studies postage stamps related to archaeology (and cultural
anthropology for spice) from the stone age to the beginnings of recorded history. As the
OWASU website notes, they're "collectors with a passion for history and small bits of paper
that take them on their mind's journey to ancient and mysterious places foreign, far and
long ago."
