topic of stamps on stamps is one of the most diverse of all topicals. Ever since Sir Rowland Hill first advocated the
use of prepaid pieces of paper to be adhered to letters to expedite their
delivery, the postage stamp has fascinated people. It should come as no
surprise, then, that the postage stamp is being used as a stamp motif, and
that topical collecting of stamps on stamps is popular. The topic of stamps
on stamps is an interesting one in that it covers many different areas and
avenues while still being true to the stamp topic.

SoS SIGNAL - Old issues
An Invitation from Lou Guadagno
I would like to invite you all to visit the SOS SIGNAL page, and especially the collection of past SOS Signals. We added issues from 1981-1983, in hopes that you might enjoy seeing the Signals from almost 40 years ago and which are so different from the more recent ones.
These Signals were all those I did as official editor and were created completely hands on-- I planned the issue, researched the articles, edited/rewrote contributed material and purchased the actual stamps illustrated. Working long before home computers, I wrote everything out long hand for my wife to type up and mounted the actual stamps on black backing pieces and arranged them on blank pages. When finished, and most had required revision and retyping, all were taken to a photocopy company who printed up the pages, packing each seperately (no collating then). These I took home, to be put in order and stapled together. Then each issue was folded in half, put in a mailing envelope, had an address label typed by my wife added, actual postage stamps applied based on destination and finally, carried to the post office to mail. "A labor of love" - all while juggling a full time job with travelling and a wife and three kids.
This is an opportunity for you to do a little time travelling, for in addition to the SoS content, there is much of the issue to issue workings and snail mail correspondence of the then-called Stamp on Stamp Centenary Unit members.
For the older members this is possibly a chance for reminisciing and for the newer members, perhaps a revelation. I hope you enjoy your visit.
