A book review by Joe Frasketi, Jr.:

SPACE COVERS:
DICTIONARY & IDENTIFIER
YEAR 2000 EDITION
by Bruce Cranford


  • Bruce Cranford announces the publication of the "Space Covers: Dictionary & Identifier, Year 2000 Edition", which contains: information about the space cover aspect of Astrophilately, for the collector, both novice and experienced.
  • It describes the various parts of a space cover and how one can identify important characteristics that impact the space cover's value.
  • Identified are more than 190 space cover manufacturers worldwide, some dating from 1957, with color figures and logos of 87 manufacturers.
  • More than 100 international locations are identified where space covers have been canceled, with 114 examples and descriptions.
  • Included in the 800 alphabetized entries are astrophilatelic terms from around the world that commemorate the conquest of space. The definitions and descriptions are short, and referenced to the original source for the collector who wishes to gather more in-depth information on the subject.
  • More than 125 references are used as sources, many with Internet addresses.

It differs greatly from the earlier version of the "Space Cover Dictionary, 1996 Edition". The 2000 Edition focuses on the space cover aspects of Astrophilatelity in much greater detail, and with more and better graphics.

The draft version of the "Space Covers: Dictionary & Identifier, Year 2000 Edition", was reviewed by many of the leading authorities in Astrophilatelity, contributing to the breadth and depth of its contents.

Bruce is an aerospace engineer and has been collecting space covers for 40 years. He is a member of the American Philatelic Society, and writes the column "Going Up" for the Space Topics Study Group publication, "Astrophile." He published the original version of the "Space Cover Dictionary" in 1996.
