The Mourning Stamps and Covers Club publishes a semi-annual newsletter/journal entitled Mourning Notes.  A publication of approximately 30 pages an issue, it is available in an electronic version sent to members by e-mail in full color, or as a black and white printed copy sent by regular mail.  Mourning Notes features wide-ranging articles on all aspects of US and world-wide mourning cover collecting, with particular emphasis on its related postal and social history.  Other regular columns treat such subjects as advertising mourning covers, mourning “cinderellas” and paper ephemera, as well as mourning stamps.  The journal also keeps a running census of “countries that used mourning covers” and other categories of specialized mourning cover collecting, such as US Presidential widow free franks, hand-made mourning covers, etc.  Subscription to our semi-annual newsletter/journal is included with membership in the Club.  Back issues of Mourning Notes are available for purchase at cost by new members.  While individual copies of the publication may be purchased by interested parties and/or non-members at a cost of $10.00 per issue, taking out a club membership is cheaper and is always encouraged.
