    Great to see this again!

    A lot of countries are still under threat, I wonder how many pages of stamps belong almost on a fictional plane?

    Interesting capture of change, Linda—makes me wonder how many other things we buy into will be invalidated by time, and how many don't really exist to begin with. Alan mentions the "fictional plane." Surely this includes the imaginary borders we draw around countries, which, barring the Great Wall of China, are entirely invisible from space. "a country that no longer is" indeed.
