Progress Update

I can't believe it is so long since I posted an update on this blog. The catalogue is a much larger job than I imagined when I began all the scanning. It could well end up at about 100 pages. I am working on it in most of my spare time now after finishing the first full colour edition of the "UK Log" (magazine of the Pitcairn Islands Study Group, UK). The catalogue WILL be printed as soon as possible . . . I hope later this year, but if not, then early in 2008. I know I have been talking it up for many years now, but finally I am getting quite excited about it. It is finally appearing on the computer in front of me: revised descriptions, new improved catalogue numbers (with the old ones retained too for cross reference), and colour scans of all cards that I can lay my hands on - both fronts, backs, errors and varieties.

I'm also working on producing a new set of Pitcairn postcards showing maps of the island. More details soon.
