I have ceased doing weekly release summaries (as well as most #ReleasedToday Tweets) due to the severe time constraints.  I may resume one or both once the current school year finishes sometime in mid-March.

This summary post lists the issuing entities alphabetically and the date of issue chronologically for the month of February.

Clicking on the issue name will take you to the original post on Philatelic Pursuits where images may be found of the stamp(s) and often full sheets, first day covers and other items associated with at particular release. Details in those blog entries are almost always taken directly from materials published by the issuers’ philatelic agency, either as press releases, collector announcements or online shop product descriptions.

The items in each stamp release are listed as best as I can determine. It can be difficult at times to determine the exact scope when there are multiple formats involved.

If an issue name is highlighted in yellow, that denotes an issue that doesn’t (yet) have an article on this site.  Eventually, the stamp will be added and this post will be updated with the link.

This post takes the place of the usual Weekly Summary.
