Snapshots of Cyprus History - Cyprus through the Ages
Thirty two stamps showing key elements of the most important historical periods of Cyprus were issued from 2007 to 2010 in four sets each comprising eight stamps resembling miniature pages of a pictorial history book. A special souvenir card was issued by AMC Cyprus Philatelic Souvenir Cards to host each stamp and its first day of issue postmark as well as additional info on the stamp's theme and content. AMC Cyprus Philatelic Souvenir Cards, also known as PENCY stamps (i.e. Pictorial ENcyclopedia of CYprus), issued their first card back in 1977 and since then, all Cyprus Republic stamps have been presented in this form that is both informative and eye catching.
