My US airmail collection includes airmail booklets and panes. I presently keep them in Vario pages (example below). I've used White Ace album pages for Airmail singles and plate blocks, but they do not have album pages just for airmail booklets and panes. I presume they are included in the album pages for regular booklets and panes, but it seems a waste to buy the complete set just to get album pages for the airmail booklets and panes.

Any other "already made" album pages just for airmail booklets and panes out there?

FWIW, below is a sample of what I have for now.

I might have to create album pages of my own. I've never "mounted" booklets. Are there special mounts for these? I have plenty of showguard mounts for the panes.

sorry I don't think I am much help here.

this article in the link above has a brief idea

i found some plastic sheet pages at the thrift shop here, I think they held of all things baseball cards, maybe that would hold a booklet and they fit into a binder and you can see on both sides, they held cardboard baseball cards so might do in a pinch, I dunno, just guessing here, good luck.

I use photo corners to mount my booklets. They can be found in both clear and black. In most scrap booking stores. Make sure they are acid free.

Good suggestion on the photo corners. I have some somewhere in my philatelic supplies that ought to work for this. Though they should be acid free, I'll probably cover the booklets in some fashion before mounting them, so they would not be in direct contact with the booklets. Thanks for the idea.

Booklets can also be displayed in clear plastic acid free business card pages. They usually fit very good. Only problem is they aren't actually on your stamp page. I have made a page showing booklet panes & put the business card page with the booklets as the next page.

For those that want ALL U.S. booklet pages, not just airmail...

Amos Press sells ten supplements for their US National albums that include booklet panes through 2013. The supplements vary from as few as 5 pages to 105 pages (that being Supplement #101BKP3, covering the years 2000-2006).

The first supplement is #101BKP1, 73 pages for years 1900-1993.

The most recent set was issued in April, #101S013, ten pages for 2013. (That item number is uncomfortably similar to the regular yearly supplement #100S013, 21 pages, so be careful if you decide to place an order.)

I don't see anything for complete booklets, which would be quite bulky in albums anyway.

Well, maybe so for all booklets, but for just airmails, the number is quite limited. For now, I use 5S vario pages. Each pocket is just about the right size for a booklet and a single pane side by side. Two double sided 5S pages hold everything I have so far, with enough room for whatever new ones I might add.

I may leave it at that. My reason for asking though, was that I was thinking about trying to display them in a more typical album format, along with other airmail stamps, and even representative FDC's. I already have an album with panes displayed along with plate blocks and FDC's. I was just curious about adding booklets to the album. If I chose to do that, the limited number (<25) would not add significantly to an album size.

I like your idea of using Vario pages, I use them too for oddball items and a few temporary "to do" things, and put the pages in the very front and back of each album, partly so things are easy to find, and partly because they provide some extra protection to the first and last few pages in an album where so much wear and tear takes place.

But US booklets are in a shoebox, and inside the shoebox are three boxes that once held 3x5 note cards, now filled with booklets in glassines.
