Accompanied by nine of Gill's previously unpublished preparatory drawings and sketches for stamps, Notes on Postage Stamps is a short, previously unpublished essay by Gill in which he succinctly lays out his philatelic ideas-some of which were a little too idealistic and some of which were spot-on. All of them are interesting and thought-provoking. Notes on Postage Stamps contains fifty-six full-color illustrations, most of which will be completely unfamiliar to historians and enthusiasts of Gill's work. An afterword by Michael Russem chronicles Gill's seven attempts at stamp design -- only two of which resulted in published stamps.
