Alan Selby’s award winning ‘ASTOC’ exhibit, King Edward VII Issue 1902-1912, has received many Gold awards for its fine and detailed coverage of the subject. The exhibit follows the classic treatment of a classic issue – trade samples, essays, die proofs, plate inscriptions, experimental coils, postal stationery and, of course, the famous Edward imperforates are beautifully covered in eight frames, followed by two frames of selected covers. This volume has been printed, as have been all Exhibit Series books produced since October 2002, from computer scanned originals instead of from the black and white photocopies used to produce earlier exhibit series volumes. Digital scanning provides better defined images and allows the exhibits to be reproduced in colour or black and white. It also ensures that a lasting copy of the original is on file for later use in a variety of formats.
