Post Horn Magazine of International Postal History celebrates its first birthday!

After the 00 test issue presented at Milanofil 2019 and shortly after – officially – at Stockholmia (May 2019), Executive Editor Publisher Claudio Ernesto Manzati was given the privilege of launching the 01 issue at Montecarlo during the AEP (Académie Européenne de Philatélie general meeting as part of the program organised by AIJP, l’Association Internationale des Journalistes Philatéliques.

The Spring-Summer edition of Post Horn Magazine (issue 02) features a selection of interesting articles written by internationally acclaimed authors and collectors who present them with a wealth of often-times previously unpublished information and eye-catching illustrations. Graphic designer Elisa Volpato contributes the ‘magic touch’ of a pleasant lay-out and strategic placement of text and illustrations.
