Books and catalogues on astrophilately
One of the most important things in astrophilately is to get the exact information about spaceflight and covers.
There is a lot of astrophilatelic material available, on the internet and written, but a lot of knowledge is in the hand of great astrophilatelist who really wat to share their data. On the other hand, publishing a book is rather expensive, as well is post & packaging.
The future lies in distributing studies and pictures on astrophilately as a CD or DVD, knowing copying is possible. Please BUY these eBooks rather than copying : the author did a lot of research during many years and merits the small fee for his eBook ! Thank you !
