What can I collect stamps ?

Both  mint -  stamps  (unused  stamps)  and   used   stamps   can be collected. These can be  collected year-wise   , nation-wise   or    theme-wise. To make this easier and more attractive to beginners, philatelists generally  advise  you  to  collect  stamps  according   to  a   selection  of   your   choice   called a  Thematic Collection. Themes may be flowers,   birds,   animals,   architecture, railways, monuments, Red Cross etc... Definitive stamps  and   stationery   can   also be collected as a theme. The bottom line is that the collection unfolds various aspects of a theme like a story.
