Nowadays, it is more important than ever, to direct our efforts to get more people interested in philately. In this regard, Philatelic Literature has a crucial role to play. Jurors should consider this aspect when judging but, unfortunately, they pay, very little attention to this important objective of Philatelic Literature. Necessary is to look for ways to give more relevance to the diffusion of philately to prospective philatelists.
