Stamp Albums and Stock Books: Stamp Albums are very specific and they typically have pictures of the stamps in them. These are what we think of as albums that we build our collection in. And stock books are more generic. They usually have rows that you can store and display stamps in. Typically a stock book is where you keep your extra or duplicate stamps or like me you can build some kind of a specialized collection in. For example I show you three pictures of one of my specialty collections. It is of castle stamps and I keep it in a stock book. I have more about Stock Books right here
