Why do people care about stamps so much until it becomes a hobby of collecting?



Looking through a world stamp album that goes back to the early days of postage stamps, the mid-1800s, is a trip through history. Literally a hundred or more nation-states that issued stamps no longer exist. These were things that people actually used in their everyday lives - and survived all kinds of things including war. Postage stamps portray an incredible variety of subjects. It's a fascinating hobby for those who are into it, and for those who aren't.... There is an old saying that applies to collecting anything, and also applies to a number of other subjects. "For those who understand, no explanation is necessary. For those who don't, no explanation will ever suffice."


Could be worse. Could be cats.
