While stamps are plentiful and cheap, the availability of stamp-based books for teachers and students remain few and far between.  We hope this present book, focusing on Singapore’s stamps of monuments and landmarks, will help to generate a greater awareness of Singapore history and, in the process, an appreciation and affection for what this ‘little red dot’ of a country has achieved.

Besides acknowledging our gratitude to this ‘little red dot’ with its monuments and landmarks for us to write about, we are also grateful to the three organisations that have made the publication of this book a reality.

First, our thanks go to the Preservation of Monuments Board (PMB) for its generous sponsorship and support and to its Chairman, Mr Alfred Wong who so kindly agreed to write the preface to this volume.  Second, we are grateful to the Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM) for providing us the high-resolution stamp images used in this book and for agreeing to co-publish this volume.  Third, we are grateful to the Singapore Heritage Society (SHS) for all it has done to make this publication possible.

The fact that three prestigious parties (PMB, SPM and SHS) have deemed it fit to be associated with the production of this book gives us much encouragement to attempt further projects.
