March in France

The 2 March 2009 new postal rate stamps are just bought that three new issues will happen in six days!

France's Constitutional Council has fifty years of protecting the Constitution... but contrary to the Accounting Court in 2007, it will not have a joint issue in every French Overseas Collectivities. For the stamp, after an imaginative "Fondation de France" anniversary stamp, Stéphanie Ghinéa gave form to an artwork quite... contemporary. It is not her fault: it is the new logotype of the institution. Supposed to be Marianne. In comparison, after all, Nicolas has 'a' taste. And that is for Thursday, 5th.

The following week-end, direction Avignon and the Palace of Popes. FINALLY! Finally, a stamp to mail letter to European Union countries and Switzerland. Martin Mörck interpreted with engraving the stone construction. Already, the issue is talked about: portraits of popes and anti-popes that resided in Avignon will be printed on the left margin of the sheets. An essay to please engraving amateur? But, which of our political elite will throw a stone in the philatelic pond by recalling that : Popes on the stamps of the Republic! Enough to laugh for a week and forget about strikes or problematic trial.

Now I have an idea of excursion for the week-end. Thank you, La Poste.

But, Monday 9, next day after the International Women's Day, you will have to be back on your horses: a adhesive twelve stamp booklet on the sale composed of photographs and paintings of twelve women met by Titouan Lamazou all around the world.

Phil@poste gave you the rest of the month to put your albums in order.

On Friday 27, take the train gain to the Spring Stampshow in Mâcon. On that day, the city stamp will be waiting for you, designed by departmental artist Pierre Albuisson. The classic philatelic landscape of a fluvial city and a statue of a local hero (Lamartine). I want stamps like that again.

On saturday, a minisheet illustrated with sportive emperor penguins will be issued. It is composed of two stamps engraved the five-year presidency star, Yves Beaujard. "Protection of the poles" is the title for these stamps, one at 0.56 euro and the other at 0.85 euro. To encourage people to write to people all over the world, why not issue more practical diptych, like the joint issued with Greenland and Brasil?

There was a first. There was a thirty-first. And then, April.
