Book: From Weather Gods to Modern Meteorology: A Philatelic Journey

WMO_philatelic_book.jpg

The authors are proud to have contributed greatly to the hardcover book From Weather Gods to Modern Meteorology: A Philatelic Journey, published by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO-No. 1023, 2008, 112-pages, ISBN 978-92-63-11023-7). The material in the book was expertly compiled by Raino Heino of the Finnish Meteorological Institute from his 128-page exhibit, which has been rewarded by Gold medals in international philatelic exhibitions. See the WMO publications catalog or the WMO online store for ordering information.
