Very suitable for a beginner, probably aimed at age range roughly 8 to 12, but still suitable for younger children, or for an adult who just wants something straightforward and a bit traditional.
The layout of pages is designed to fit an average mix of world stamps, as they might be collected by someone in the UK. This means that, for example, Great Britain gets two pages, and there are pages for each of Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man, and that USA has two pages, but there is one page shared by Vatican City and Venezuela. The main limitation of a fast-bound album is that once these pages are filled, you can't easily expand. The next natural step would be to move the "busy" countries out into a loose leaf album

This is one of our most popular lines, both in our shop and mail order.
