Hello and Welcome. My name is Carlos and the intention of this blog is to show all the new releases of stamps with Lighthouses. From those dedicated exclusively to this topic up to the stamps where you have to use a magnifying glass to find a Lighthouse. If you know of a stamp with these characteristics and it's not listed, please let me know so I can posted. Thanks in advance.
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.

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.
