I'm a bit mystified by "delving into your [whose?] collecting interest".
Welcome aboard (again)rcowen5 wrote: ↑22 Aug 2021 02:56Hi - I am not technically a new member as I made a post in 2012. I collect anything to do with Botswana FDC's and commemorative covers (the first 50 years). I used to be chair of the philatelic society in Botswana and sat on the Government Stamp Advisory Board that decided o new issues etc. Now retired, I want to exhibit parts of my collection and would like some advice on this. Basically, I am wondering whether to make many single frame exhibits on the following topics or combine them somehow into one exhibit. I would be really grateful for some advice on this. The frame topics i could do are (A) Errors related to official FDC and Commemorative covers (B) The commissioning and design of a stamp issue (C) Unofficial FDC and Commemorative Covers (D) First flight covers. I have a lot of interesting material on these topics but my initial thinking is that they are so different that if an exhibit is to 'tell a story' then they need to be separate exhibits????
Not exactly. It depends on what you want to show, and how you want to show it. Of course, the first person who needs to see the connection between different parts of your exhibit is you. Then you have to explain that connection to others, including judges. If you're not convinced that your exhibit has a good plan, you should change it with a different one that makes you feel comfortable. The change may include removing or adding new chapters such as narrowing or widening the time period or geographic reach.rcowen5 wrote: ↑22 Aug 2021 05:45So, you mentioned that you think I could put all of those 4 topics in one exhibit - would that be with a title like 'Topics related to Botswana fdc AND commemorative covers' ? My worry is that the topics are rather unconnected so putting them in as a single entry may seem weird to some.
I wouldn't worry about this. We are not supposed to surprise the judges.
