What is the best option for mounting the Great Britain Battle of Hastings strip of stamps in an album? No mount strip seems long enough for the whole strip and I prefer not to hinge.

The only way to mount the strip and retain its original design is diagonally. You should be able to make a neat strip from two shorter ones without the join's being visible. You can then mount the other two stamps on either side.

Depends how big your page is, of course. The other option is to have your page in landscape format, if that doesn't offend your aesthetic sense. I mainly do that for certain miniature sheets.

The original Steiner. Since the design is not crossing, I have no issues with breaking them up,

Thanks everyone; I'm going to follow Geoff's suggestion of using two mount strips. The joint where they meet should not be too visible.

One more idea - this is how my older Gibbons album places the strip.
