Along those lines, how do you prefer to arrange your cancel collections?
Collecting postmarks, is akin to collecting sand grains on the beach.
it's endless (but enjoyable)
As a worldwide collector, my time is most important
so my routine is
1. Collect images digitally first. Why?
One click and you can sort EVERY postmark, of your discipline
and compare that to Auction Catalogues, for price and scarcity.
Collect randomly, use block spaces as stock sheets and pencil in
I use the pages to give flavour to my Steiner Pages
I am not a fan of Vario pages, prefer to hinge
Some examples of my humble efforts
This also gives me opportunity to see "shades"
or "on piece"
"whatever floats your boat"
