**PRESS RELEASE** Stamp collectors excited by new book focusing on Indian flags and their development as represented on stamps worldwide...
Kodansha Europe is delighted to introduce something new and different to the stamp-collecting community from India’s most well-known philatelist
The Indian National Flag unfurled through Philately by Sekhar Chakrabarti (Niyogi Books; £10.99; durable softcover) is a brand new contribution to stamp knowledge that greatly benefits from the author’s expertise and long experience in both philately and vexillology (study of flags).
Full-colour throughout, and richly illustrated with hundreds of photos and illustrations, this impressively researched and produced softcover shows how Indian flags in general and the National Flag(s) in particular have developed through history through their representation in Indian and world stamps. In doing so, the author concurrently describes and illustrates the development of the Indian postal service and its stamps, imprints and postmarks.
For further details, see the attached 4-page PDF, which includes some double-page spreads from the book to give a clearer impression of its appearance and style.
