30.09.2016 - Second edition of the free digizine

(rk) The German study group ‘Portugal und ehemalige Kolonien‘ (‘Portugal and its former colonies‘) recently presented the second edition of its free digizine ‘Moderne Angola-Philatelie‘ (MAP). In July 2016, the first edition was published. It triggered remarkable positive response, which inspired the study group to repeat the effort as soon as possible. Hence the appearance of a second edition of this publication about modern Angolan philately. There are also plans to publish another three editions of the digizine in 2017.
The main articles in Edition 2 of MAP are about the first postage stamps of the People's Republic of Angola (11 November 1975) and the role of the philatelic agency Afinsa in the period between 2001 and 2004. Also interesting information about meter stamps can be found, counter stamps that more and more take over the role of the traditional postage stamp.
