The sequel to the American Art Stamp Album is one of the next books Railway Station Press will publish. The Kickstarter campaign began on Bastille Day, the 14th of July and sold 40% of the Limited Edition of 100 books with all of the stamps included the first day. Look for the link to the campaign HERE.
The Basic Stamp Album is now available for purchase. It sells for $18 with $4 first class shipping in the US, $15 for Canada, and $22 for the rest of the world. The book contains the first three stamps and it is up to you to find the other 38 stamps to complete the album. These books are spiral bound so that you can lay the book flat while you work on your stamp album. Go to Books for Sale page for more details.
Wayne Youngblood has written an excellent review of this stamp album which appears on pages 63 and 64 of the March/April 2019 issue of Topical Time, the magazine of the American Topical Association.

I am now transcribing my father’s letters and preparing the first volume of his letters, “Letters From the Alcan Highway by Captain Stuart V. Bradley” using excerpts of 150 letters he wrote my mother during 1942 and 1943 in British Columbia while the 95th was building the Alcan (Alaska) Highway.
Update: An excellent history of the Black 93rd Engineer Regiment, which built the part of the Alcan Highway in the Yukon Territory, has been written by Christine & Dennis McClure called “We Fought the Road” just published in October. I am enjoying the book very much. It can be found HERE at their website.

We have published three books each year. But we need working capital up front to make this happen. This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and help us do that!
