ABOUT THESE PAGES

I have been collecting poster stamps for at least twenty years now, and maintain a web site about stamp collecting - alphabetilately.org.

About five years ago, in 2009, I was delighted to find the web pages of a collector who called himself just FRANK, of Cologne Germany. He displayed wonderful material I had never seen before, especially in such completeness - full sets of scarce, hard-to-find poster stamps from the early 1900's advertising long-extinct products and stores in elaborate, full-color designs of amazing artistry.

Recently I decided to see if Frank had added to his pages, and found to my dismay that they no longer existed. Fortunately, I had saved copies of the pages, and found an email address, so I fired off a message, asking where the pages had gone.

Alas, he did not reply.

I cannot allow this wonderful resource to die, so I am providing on my own site these copies of Frank's pages. I have reformatted them a little to suit my own style, but the main text and images are all as I found them.

If you are the original owner of these pages, or know where I can reach him, please contact me at:
