THE THEMATIC PHILATELIST
The PANHELLENIC SOCIETY OF THEMATIC
PHILATELY & YOUTH has published a Bulletin during the whole span
of its life. Since the day it was founded until 1999, the Bulletin was printed
with the use of a polygraph, in sheets of paper of Α4
format. Its contents mainly included club news, philatelic
activities in Greece, as well as information on new
stamp issues of Greece, Cyprus and the United Nations.
The NEWSLETTER of
the P.S.T.P. & YOUTH, as it was then named, achieved a
respectable standard and was awarded various prizes and diplomas in Greece and Cyprus
("ATHENS-PIRAEUS ‘95" Silver Bronze, "KIFISSIA ’98"
“CYPRUS– EUROPHILEX ‘95” Silver Bronze etc.).
One of the last issues of the
before its replacement by the THEMATIC PHILATELIST.
At the beginning of 2000, the new quarterly magazine THE THEMATIC PHILATELIST
was first published. It
started with few pages and a number of technical problems. Its creators
showed a lot of enthusiasm but lacked the necessary technical
knowledge and modern tools. Year in year out, the essential experience
acquired. Contents, quality and appearance of the Bulletin have improved and its
significance within the Hellenic
Thematic Philately continuously increased.
