2012 PDF File Available

Hello Friends.
It is available now the 2012 PDF File with the issues of that year. The file is free and you can download it from here:

It´s a free hosting service. If you have any problem to download the file from there, you can send me a mail and I will send you a copy. Just put in the subjet "2012 File". No need to write something else.
About some questions regarding the cover... It´s not a digital work.  It is a scan of real stamps of my collection at the time of publishing this file.  If some issue is missing, is because I do not have that stamp yet.
I hope that this will be useful to you.
We keep in touch.

2013 - France

This is not confirmed yet.

This is a POSSIBLE Lighthouse issue

Release Date: April 29, 2013
Title: Impressionism - Theme: The Water
Format: Booklet

Why is under watch?:  One of the stamps and the cover of the booklet is dedicated to Louis Boudin and his painting "La Jetée de Deauville".   The object inside the lines could be the Trouville East Jetty light. 
The painting is from 1869,  so this could be the original East Jetty,  because both lights that exists today are from 1875.  6 years after that the painting was made.
Searching for information that confirm this.
