What is Topical Stamp Collecting?

Topical collectors concentrate on specific topics and themes represented by the stamps. Some collectors concentrate on the subject depicted in stamps, other are interested in stamps of specific color, stamps illustrated in a particular style or even stamps designed by a specific artist. The American Topical Association (ATA) is the world's largest organization for stamp collectors who focus on specific topics.  Learn more...
