Stamps: Philatelic Resources

Zeppelins captured the imagination of the world. Not everyone could afford a flight on a Zeppelin but hundreds of thousands of letters, postcards and packages traveled abroad them. Many countries issued special stamps to commemorate the flights. The philatelic world is rich in Zeppelin stamps. This page acts as a guide to information and resources. More information may be found on my Zeppelin: Stamps webpage. Enjoy.
