The latest edition of The Philatelic Journalist, the official magazine of the International Association of Philatelic Authors and Journalists (AIJP), which is published three times a year, has been available since the beginning of this month. The issue is dominated by the upcoming international event MonacoPhil in Monte Carlo and by the extraordinary special exhibition about Philipp von Ferrari. It also provides interesting contributions that contain useful advice, a review of FINLANDIA 2017 and the complete regulations for the upcoming international philatelic literature exhibition ITALIA 2018, for which application closes at the end of this month. Another important contribution concerns the first part of a study on the development of organized philately and philatelic literature in Canada. As always, most contributions are written in English, but a number of the articles are also available in German.
