With its 134 pages, the latest edition of AIJP Bulletin (1/2006) may be considered to be book rather than a bulletin. The publication contains a wealth of information, offers a lot of advice and deals with a number of issues that are discussed right now within the world of philatelic authors and philatelic journalists. In the Bulletin - it contains texts in English as well as in German - a number of critical developments are brought up the radar, like the ever increasing phenomenon of public relations driven journalism and the question how useful measures to fight illegal stamp issues so far have been. Those active in stamp clubs and official associations are instructed how they can see to it that the information they want to provide reaches its goal as good and as efficient as possible. Other ‘how to’ items deal for instance with copyright matters and how to publish details that show the readers who is responsible for their publications. A special feature called ‘Advice for Authors’ (part 2) shows the readers of the Bulletin how to they can plan efficiently. How to publish on CD- or DVD-ROM is another theme present in the new AIJP Bulletin; it concerns a contribution of someone who has a lot of experience in this field.

Those interested in specialised literature will enjoy a contribution about important historical libraries and their librarians and they will certainly be interested in the large number of reviews that can be found in this edition. Never before has an edition of the AIJP Bulletin so voluminous; this underlines that the new Board of the AIJP is seriously striving to fulfil the goals that it has set when it was appointed last year. Edition 1/2006 of the AIJP Bulletin will be distributed as from February 25th, 2006.
