The American Society of Polar Philatelists is rarely mentioned here on SCF, and I would like to take this opportunity to raise their profile a bit.

http://www.polarphilatelists.org/

Their newsletter is the near-eponymous ICE CAP NEWS; ~60 years of back issues are available on CDROM for ~$1//year.

They also sell the 'Essence of Polar Philately' by Hal Vogel.

http://pbbooks.com/newfor.htm "A surprisingly enjoyable book even for those with no interest in the subject."

Joe Bob says check 'em out.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey
