We are a small but talented publishing team who are passionate about our stewardship of the world’s oldest philatelic trade publication.

Alison Boyd


Alison has spent her entire career in the publishing industry, starting at an academic bookshop and then moving to the business book division of an international publisher. Before becoming editor of Philatelic Exporter, she combined her role on Gibbons Stamp Monthly with being the editor of a sailing magazine and editing military history books. A fascination with history and the material past began with her childhood stamp collection.
