As a child stamp collecting offered colorful and graphic global vignettes. This album of stamps with accompanying text from the 1930s offers insights to the colonialism and racism that fueled WWII. Words and ideas which were seemingly benign now burn into our hearts and minds. This is a grim and riveting glimpse into the past if you take the time to read and reflect on the thoughts of another era. The Third World was a pie to be sliced and consumed by dominant super powers.
