The Rose

The Rose has long been considered "Queen of Flowers" not alone for its beauty but also utility value... appreciated as such consistently for centuries.

It has had such a long and most intriguing story and still an intriguing on-going drama. More and more people are growing roses as a hobby and use them as decoratives. In Literature and Art, roses feature prominently.

 

Now even modest postage stamps portray roses of different kinds and varied hues, producing so-called "Rose Stamps" in great number and rapidly getting prettier as printing techniques improve. We cannot predict when this avalanche of "Rose Stamps" will stop. But we certainly are convinced that the interest for them will never subside.

 

It is for this precise reason we bothered to compose this special work, "Roses On Stamps" as a supplemental resource for "Rose Stamp collectors" with the hope of enhancing their appreciation and joy in their hobby.

 

May you enjoy this collection of Rose stamps as much as we enjoyed composing it for you. Note that some of the "Rose stamps" have their names printed on the stamp. But for those which do not, the fun begins for you by going to libraries and researching on them.
