Stamps of Burma: A Historical Record Through 1988
The postage stamps of Burma, like stamps of other countries the world over, are a colorful visual record of a unique history. Stamps represent the British colonial government through the Japanese occupation, the British military administration, Burmese independence, the revolutionary council, and the Burmese Way to Socialism. But what of the most significant event in Burma's modern history - the pro-democracy uprising of 1988? No stamp depicts it.
This imaginative book features each stamp issued in Burma through 1988, ending with a series of stamps specially created by Min Sun Min, to be issued, he says, "one day, when Burma is free."
