Selected study unit - Ships on Stamps Unit

For as long as people have needed to cross bodies of water, people have used watercraft to do it. The Ships on Stamps Unit studies this topical area of philately, from ancient one-man canoes and rafts to the biggest container freight vessels and fastest and most luxurious cruise liners of today. The study unit publishes the bimonthly Watercraft Philately journal for members, featuring articles about watercraft and the stamps that depict them. Check out the unit's website,, for some individual ship and maritime history studies on stamps of the world.
