We are so few collectors of Ethiopian stamps, perhaps only a few hundred with Ethiopia as main collection area, and being spread all over the world we seldom meet. What is the sense in building large collections and making good presentations if no one can see them? Therefore I decided to establish a website to share my Ethiopia stamp albums with my fellow collectors, especially all members of our club – the Ethiopian Philatelic Society – but everyone is welcome to have a look. By describing each stamp set, and including history, photos and illustrations, I hope that also non-philatelists will enjoy all the wonderful Ethiopian stamps and learn about this fascinating and interesting country.
This site consists of two parts: A general part open to everyone where you can view my stamp albums and read about me and my collection, and a members part where collectors of Ethiopian stamps can apply for ‘membership’. Members of the Ethiopian Philatelic Society are very welcome, but everyone with special interest in Ethiopian stamps may apply. In the members section there is an open forum, or discussion board, where members can discuss Ethiopian philately and share information.
The different pages are available by clicking on the icons in HOME page slider, or through links in the upper right part of the screen or in the text.
Since I am fascinated by Wikimapia where everyone can access maps of the world and add descriptions and photos, I have added several links to maps in my “About me” text – especially to places where I have added photos myself. This will help you to locate the places I refer to. I have also added links to lots of other Ethiopia related stuff – explore and enjoy!
