There are so many different types of topics one encounters when collecting stamps. In fact, the number of topics is limitless. For example, the topic art on stamps can be further subdivided and specialized into pop art, paintings, portraits, nature scenes, etc. I am still pretty new to this and haven’t really spent much time on any one topic enough to call myself a topical collector. But I do plan to focus on a particular stamp topic soon. When I can, I plan to begin collecting stamps featuring the Resurrection. I suppose if there’s any place to start, that has to be it.
One of the reasons I am excited about getting the chance to build a collection of resurrection stamps is simply the various subtle differences in how each artist views the resurrection. Also, I’ll suddenly find myself no longer confined by a particular country, territory, or region. I’m guessing that my chosen topic will expand to include all Easter stamps, stamps depicting the life and ministry of Jesus. Who knows where it will stop…or if it will. In my travels, I’m sure I’ll pick up a few seemingly unrelated topical favorites to explore in the future as well.
