(Preface) 'The Archive Series - Graphic design is one of the ways of understanding the semiotics of culture, a fact that increases the need for archives that preserve graphic design artefacts that might otherwise be thrown away. Unless we collect and preserve printed specimens we will lose part of our ability to decode the past. Unit Edition's Archive Series is dedicated to celebrating hidden and neglected visual archives. The first title in the series is devoted to the design of postage stamps. Sourced from the collections of stamp design experts lain Follett and Blair Thomson, this book celebrates the often-neglected aesthetic and technical brilliance of postage stamps from around the world.'
