20.09.2005 - SBZ Official AIJP Partner!
The 'Schweizer Briefmarken-Zeitung' (SBZ) is one of the oldest, if not the eldest, still existing stamp magazines of the world.

The 'Schweizer Briefmarken-Zeitung' (SBZ) is one of the oldest, if not the eldest, still existing stamp magazines of the world. It belongs to the best publications on philately and stamp collecting that nowadays can be found. Well-known authors and philatelists have left their 'literary tracks' in this old and very respectable magazine.

In this respect, it was a delightful occasion for the AIJP to be notified on September 12th of this year by the President of the Association of Swiss Philatelic Societies, Pierre Godat, that an Official Partnership of the magazine with the AIJP was sought.

The partnership will commence with entrance of January 1, 2006. Both partners, the AIJP as well the Schweizer Briefmarken-Zeitung, are committed to promote the production of high-quality philatelic publications. Hans Schwarz, Editor-in-Chief of the SBZ for some time now, is already a member of the AIJP; he will act as an intermediate between the magazine and the AIJP. We wish the SBZ a heartily welcome!
