Greetings friends!

Exhibitions of postage stamps, such as the one that took place in 1087 in Canada in the city of Toronto and called CAPEX '87, is an important event in the world of philately.

As in any market, there are two players. philatelists, as a buyer, strive to buy up the maximum circulation of postage stamps, and publishing houses, countries participating in the exhibition, try to sell these postage stamps much more expensive than their face value.

At such exhibitions, you can see freshly released
postage stamps, the price of which is 3-4 times higher than their face value.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
