Volume 4 Issue 3



In this issue

Some keen thematic collectors scour the world when they tackle a topic like Brigitte Bardot – but they find there’s not much out there that’s not in the “stamp economy”, “private issue”, “illegal issue” or “downright fraudulent” class. But they collect the gal anyway! Why? Maybe they were in their teens when she was “Hollywood HOT” and they remember her vividly. Perhaps they went to the local bughouse and drank in her every movement and word. Whatever their reasons, it’s a real pleasure to revisit a past when everyone knew exactly of whom you spoke if you mentioned “BB”. La Brigitte! Our cover catches BB in one of her characteristic pouty-lipped poses. She sure had the “Wow!” factor. Oui?
