As our cover shows, ASP is pushing as hard as possible to get all readers who can come along to AUSTRALIA 2013 at the Royal Exhibition Building in May. This cover was also designed to catch the eye of casual newsagency browsers who are not yet collectors! We hope the roo stamps, with prices attached, shock them into realising just how serious and incredible philately really is. The more people who understand, the better! Stamp images: By kind permission of Paul Fletcher of Millennium Auctions who just happened to have a ready-made and very nice-looking group of high quality Roo and Map stamp images, together with values realised at one of his auctions. Photographic credit: Thanks to photographer Nathan Odgers for the excellent shot of a kangaroo, showing so much “personality”, as shown on our front cover. Mr Odgers, who sometimes works under the photographic name “Behemoth 14″ is based in Panania, NSW. He used a Nikon D705 (at 1/180th second exposure, aperture f/5, 70mm lens), for this fine shot which was cropped from a wider shot with great appeal – but we really did need the tight close-up.
