Asian Stamps |  Stamps from Asia

The Stamps and Postal History of Asia

From the Galata Bridge in Istanbul to the eastern tip of Hokkaido and from the borderlands of Kazakhstan to the islands of Indonesia the vast area referred to as ‘Asia’ offers philatelists stamps and postal history as varied and exotic as the people and landscapes within its massive reach. The sophistication of the gold embossed modern issues of Thailand to the classic stamps of old Afghanistan where tearing was used instead of postmarks! From countries as diverse as Iran with its 19th Century imperf ‘Lions’, dynamic 1979 revolutionary designs and its joyful recent sporting and wildlife issues – through to Nepal, that kingdom perched high in the Himalayas with her gentle non-political stamp designs.
