"Entertaining nostalgia trip" (Express)

"Telling a nation's story through a selection of its stamps is an ingenious idea for a book, and Chris West has executed it with flair and imagination" (D J Taylor)

"Small but pefectly formed - 5 stars" (Ceri Radford The Telegraph)

"A splendid reminder of the philatelic glories of the past… These miniature gems are of the highest quality in design, subject choice and colour" (David Driver The Times)
