Illustrated Stamp Albums
Since 1999, PALO albums of Chicago, USA have been producing, in our opinion, the finest
single country pages for every world country including all the French Colonies. The pages on
acid-free paper come with either plain or hingeless format the latter having a clear mount over
each printed space which avoids hinges and protects the stamps. The pages are 5 ring for their
beautifully well-made albums which come with a matching slipcase. Pages of later issues
actually have each space shown in full colour. We heartily recommend Palo albums. Below
are some very clean pre-owned albums (no stamps included). Postage charged at best rate.
