So the story goes like this: Brazil has released some very pretty franks these days, with different shapes and images and I wanted to collect them but I didn’t knew how.
I could collect the first day envelopes in which the franks come, but I really don’t have that passion for the envelopes… somehow they don’t get my love. I just wanted the franks, only them in a clear pretty way, all of them together. So I researched and found that this is called Marcophily and that I wanted to do it! But for the life of me I couldn’t find anything saying how you should collect these marks and if there were rules or guidelines as to how you would collect the franks.
SO I decided I should get myself some notebook without any lines or marks and ask the central philatelic agency lady to put the franks in it so I could have a notebook of franks. I won’t have the other awesome franks from other countries because god knows I will NEVER cut the envelopes in which I received the sweet mail that other people put together for me. But hey, it’s a start. So here it is, with the help of the lovely lady from the central philatelic agency of Porto Alegre: my marcophilatic collection! <3
P.S: Any material on Marcophily will be VERY welcome! Anyone?
