    Sweden Post

    Sweden Post Stamps S-981 84 Kiruna, Sweden. They sell Swedish new releases, year sets of stamps or booklets, CTO, FDC, year books and specialized coffee-table type books. Now available a 221 page book on Slania, for instance. They take credit cards and their fax line sometimes works. You may order directly over the internet.
    At last look there were images of all Swedish stamps since Jan 1, 1995. Also you can order FDC covers now after the FDOI, which is useful. I recommend all Swedish collectors investigate this site (and watch out for heavy graphics downloads).
