Philatelic Stamp Description : The stamp depicts Early Philatelic Magazines. Phiatelic literature, especially periodicals, played a vital role in disseminating news and information and bringing togather philatelists. A few early efforts, such magazines as "The Philatelic World" and "The Indian Philatelists", both started in 1894, were short lived. 'The Philatelic Journal of India', issued by the Philatelic Society of India, was first published at Calciutta in 1897 and is still current. 'India's Stamp Journal' has seen over 50 years of publication and 'Signet' and 'Ind Dak', a decade. Other magazines like 'Top Phil', 'Stamp World', 'Digest', etc. are steadily contributing their efforts to Phiately. The stamp depicts the mast heads of some of the early philatelic magazines.
