The most interesting and fun areas of philately is thematic collecting and exhibiting!
The Basic Idea of Philatelic Exhibiting is that you are telling a complete philatelic or thematic story using philatelic items to illustrate your points. Like a book, your story will have a beginning, a middle and an end. The material will be described on the exhibit pages briefly, but it is the material that tells the story not lengthy text.
The only exceptions to this are Topical Exhibits from a thematic collector, who would show a variety of stamps and philatelic items that represent a single topic or category.
