I haven't been into stamps very long, so forgive my ignorance.

I never would have dreamed there were albums made based on topics.
The other day I was reading somewhere and the subject of topics
came up in an album context, and it seems that there are actually
albums made that are solely based on topics. So I am interested in
finding out more about it. (My little girl collects horses on stamps)

So who makes these topical albums?
Where can I find them?
If you are familiar with any, have you seen one about horses?
Are there any links to shopping or learning more about these albums?

Thank you!
Dave

A good chance to buy album-printing software and teach your kids how to CREATE. The computer skills will be valuable all your little girl's life, and you may find, over time, that she has a talent for design and layout, another valuable skill in the 21st Century. Maybe that's how website designers start.

If I were a teen-ager again, that would be my choice of careers (and stamp dealer on the side).

I was thinking of doing the same for martial arts on stamps and could not find one.

I was fortunate enough to find a site that listed the majority of this topic. I am now able to make an album for it in the future.

I am sure that there are a lot more stamps with horses than there are for the martial arts. Hope you can find a supplier for your needs. Maybe you should Google "Horses on Stamps" to see what you can find (?)

For ratio411: This site can be used as a virtual directory, for a detailed translation you can use Google translator. And my own catalog "Bridges on stamps", I did as suggested doug2222.

One more aspect to all this; if your little girl is NUTS about collecting horse stamps, the chances are good she will be NUTS about making album pages. She won't even know she's learning something valuable LOL.

And when the "next" topic (hmmm, antique cars, dolls, spiders, Red Cross) suddenly pops up, she'll know just what to do. Buying a ream of paper a month is a small price to pay to unlock all this potential talent.

Doug:
I like the idea of her printing her own album, but I would still need
some sort of pre-made breakdown of all the stamps that would need to
be included in the album to be complete. Collecting and mounting the
stamps holds her attention, but trying to research the stamps to put
in her album would end up unfinished. She'd do the album just fine,
but the inventory is not her strong suit.

I print up all of my own albums. By doing so, I can set every page the way I want it. On some of my pages, I have a stamp and one on cover as well. This is for the classic period only as it would not be feasible for me to do this with the more modern issues.

By printing up my own, I also don't have to worry about suppliments
