04/17/2023 :  Finger crossed for Starship / SuperHeavy : please do NOT blow up the pad ! Scrub! A frozen pressurizing valve, try again tomorrow !

09/08/2022 : 
Your Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ;
Thank you for bringing to the world the smile, color, consistency, stability, reliability and playfulness that we needed.
Let’s hope that spark of benevolence continues to shine in your absence.
Thank you.

07/26/2022 :  The theme meteo : It is meteorology, but also weather forecasts, soil analysis (Spot image) the study of climate and climate change, but also Solar winds and atmospheric studies (balloons, satellites).

08/31/2021 :  Mr. Etienne writing about the commemorative covers we create together :
"We continue to carry the tradition of creating, designing and producing philatelic materials that continue documenting man’s continued exploration of space and technological advancement. I do agree it may not be very profitable, but historically we are leading the way for items that will be enjoyed and collected for generations to come."

12/31/2020 : 

I am confident you will start 2021 with a stronger mind, equipped to face situations better and an ability to adapt and find joy pride and pleasure in simpler things.
Happy New Year !

12/24/2020 :  - The Album Bindings we are waiting for will be available by the end of January 2021.
- we are late in the processing of orders, and we receive letters late too : we will grant the 20% discount to all orders where cancellation date is until December 20, 2020.
- We wish you a Merry Christmas !
- We ask you to be extremely cautious because this time of year (Sun hours), travels and household gatherings, all combine for peak virus transmission and worst outcomes. => if you can delay gatherings for April/May, that would be a better plan!

03/18/2020 :  Espace Lollini continues to operate during the pandemic, as long as the French postal services are operating, and I can access my workplace. Orders are shipped as usual.

I respect the rules of hygiene and distance to the best of my abilities.

I would like to send you a message of support: Our grandparents have had to face wars, restrictions, evacuations…
Today it’s just a question of hygiene, caution, and ... staying at home. It shouldn’t be difficult.

Please respect the sanitary regulations and the reinforced hygiene. The action of each person is essential in order to relieve health systems.

Stay calm and patient, this situation can last longer, 60, 90 days who knows?

This is the perfect time to meditate, and open a stamps album.

Perhaps this event will allow human beings to realize the vulnerabilities of an overly liberal globalized system. The systematic abuse of international dependencies for both industry and predatory tourism makes localities, communities, groups of people powerless and incapable of self-sufficiency.

Whether to be prepared for the next pandemics, or to create a new system of civilization compatible with our habitat on Earth: we must radically change.

The root of all these problems lies in each of us. We resist inevitable and mandatory changes. We always want more, and the result of all this is that we put our individual freedom BEFORE the freedom of the world.

Our individual freedoms are ransacking our habitat on Earth.
Our individual freedoms imprison future communities in a shrinking box.

The freedom of one stops or begins that of the other, thus, and in order to allow the future of the world to be free and at peace, we must constrain ourselves.

You are a drop in the ocean, but the ocean requires all the drops to exist. We must act.

Humans are not separated from nature: we are nature.
One human feels the pain of the other, don’t you feel that the survival systems offered by your spacecraft, Earth, are being murdered?

Covid-19: Co = corona = crown, vi = virus, and d = disease.
SARS-CoV-2 = virus responsible for Covid-19 disease.

SARS = SARS Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome
(2003 epidemic)

SARS (SARS-CoV) and SARS-CoV-2 are two different viruses from the coronavirus family.
coronaviruses are so named because under a microscope we see a crown.
coronaviruses are viruses of which the common cold is a part, in humans they are generally respiratory diseases.

The coronaviruses are destroyed by water + SOAP in 20 to 30 seconds: the soap tears the lipid crown of the virus.

There is no treatment for coronaviruses, the patient’s immune system adapts, and fights the virus. Antibiotics are only useful against bacteria, they are useless against the coronavirus.

Wash your hands, and consider cleaning your smartphones and keyboards.
Stay away from other people.

08/08/2018 :  Statement :


Illustrate all space related events with philatelical documents of all kinds, keeping the space facts as accurate as possible. And enabling the collectors to view and choose items that are of interest to them.
Taking into account the vast differences between collection styles and purposes, we are forced to have the widest selection possible, including as much items as we can.
Our goals are not only to sell, but also to document, file and keep records in our database CATAWEB of all existing space related philatelical material, including those out of stock or even rare items we were never able to have available. (we are always looking for pictures and stories for those)
ESA asked us to cover all the space events, emphasize on the ESA related events but also promote fair competition among national and private companies of the world.
Space has no boundary, Space don’t care for politics. We don’t care either.
Both space conquest and climate are world uni- ting fights.
We are living a turning point in Space achievements : after a long pause following the Moon race, now is beginning a new era of competition in space commercial use, and the race to Mars. Astronauts are selected, exploration flights are restarting !!
Space is also useful in climate change. Accurate Earth observations from satellites are ultimately helping the human species to survive.
You choose if you wish to embark fully : become a subscriber for stamps or covers, or pick the items you like on the order form or place more specific order using the website databases.

09/16/2017 :  Cassini, Farewell. This needed moment of transition opens thinking to next steps. Ingenuity replaced fuel, space navigation using gravity of moons the same that were just discovered.

Those are 3 potential worlds that might allow the existence of life, either native, or imported. The more we search, the more Space uncover amazing things that are more beautiful, better, bigger, more frequent than expected. What an exciting time for science !

01/27/2017 :  We have added the keyword I.G.Y. "International Geophysical Year" French: Année géophysique internationale or A.G.I. For all the stamps about the event in 1957-58; and also later stamps featuring the logo. Our polar album title is "Pôles et AGI"

12/26/2016 :  Save the planet ! Our efforts are small and late, but anyway : Since 2013 we use LEDs for lighting, in 2014 we started selling photovoltaic energy to utility, in 2015 we used FSC 50% recycled paper, in 2017 (starting now) it is 100% recycled paper with short travel path (origin France and Portugal). We push to convert subrcribers from Letter to eMail and so whe reduced by 70% the printed Space Revue quantity. And yourself, what do you do ?

02/11/2016 :

07/13/2015 :  Pluto / Charon, July 11, 2015,

New Horizons is in final approach for closest enconter scheduled July 14. This face of Pluto will not be seen with higher resolution, however the opposite face featuring the dark "whale tail" and the "heart" shaped bright area, will be seen with much greater detail. The picture shown here is a montage I have sharpened and brung Pluto and Charon closer together and added a flat color to Pluto. Multispectral picture will be far more interesting, but for the moment that is the best we can do.

08/06/2014 :  Rosetta meets Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Until this great first, all encouters with asteroids or comets by man made probes were of short duration. This time Rosetta will not only stay with the comet more than a year, but also follow tail formation while closing in with the Sun and there is more! Rosetta will drop Philæ, wich will attempt to touch, or land on the comet surface.

08/05/2014 :  Inmarsat & MH370 Study of data and meta-data of Inmarsat-3 F1 satellite, and thanks to ingeniosity of researchers, it was possible to pinpoint the last hours of flight of Malaysian MH370, then to determine probable location of the aircraft wreck. New search will start in August 2014 thanks to this. The flight recorders may help solving mystery of this dramatic event. One Hypothesis seem to fit most of the facts : cabin lost pressurization, all crew loosing consciousness, an unqualifier person trying all buttons in the cockpit, then flight continuing on autopilot until end of fuel.

07/07/2014 :  Atom and Physicist
Study of the fabric that makes our Universe. Here is a collection that brings you both the infinite big and the infinite small. By the stamps, you will see horror of the radioactive death and the benefit of a power source that is as of today the only one we have; it is powerful and compact enough to satisfy our needs and its pollution can be under control. You will dicover research that force mathematics to develop, huge instruments, men and machines builders of a better future. Those who do not rejact a science newly born. Those who accept the risks of trial and error. Those who want to understand everything. This is the collection of those who beleive in the best part in us. Those adventurer of matter who stay or will be celebrities... Nuclear peace, Rays used in medecine, Means of propulsion for Earth or space that solve the problems of autonomy speed and safety, the Fusion, the Big-bang, the Particles, are all topics in the album Atom.
