The rework begins!
With the ability to use MICHEL catalog numbers, I decided to redo older supplements and add catalog numbers. Well, I figured, if I am going to redo a bunch of old work, I'm going to do it right. So, I made some changes that I think will still blend in with older pages, so everyone is not forced to remount all their stamps. The changes are:
1. The stamps on the page are now in date of issue order (to the best of my ability) 2. Catalog numbers are under the stamp box 3. Date of issue is over the stamp box
The typical stamp looks like this on the page:
A full page looks like this:
Redoing all the pages is taking time. I had 1992-1997 done and decided to release them before things get too hectic around the holidays.
7zip archives of the PDFs and Scribus files can be found on my stamp blog:

And the 2014 Supplement is FINALLY done!
The 2014 Europa booklet is a mess. The only way to really mount it is to tear out the two pages and mount them. There is an explanation in the PDF
This supplement includes PDFs with stamp images, "inksaver" PDFs without stamp images, and "inksaver" pdfs with no MICHEL catalog numbers.
There were quite a number of microprint varieties of the 8th definitive series. A lot of them have not been assigned MICHEL catalog numbers. I spent some time and figured out what the catalog numbers are going to be, based on MICHEL's numbering policy.
Special thanks to UPNS member Mark Stelmacovich for providing me scans of the 8th definitive series, so I could see the release date in the selvage.
Ukraine released a self-adhesive definitive this year. It was sold in a sheet that looks like it was designed for vending machines. My plan is to mount the stamp individually, and I designed the sheets that way. If you want to mount the whole sheet, please leave a comment or email me and I'll whip up a page for the whole booklet.
Regarding those 1918 Ukrainian stamps, you say they were released "imperforate on thin paper". Do you have hints on how to tell forgeries from genuine? The Scott catalogue simply says the genuine are on "thin paper" and the forgeries on "very thin, glossy paper". I have a bunch that look almost like glassine paper - I assume that's the very thin glossy paper that Scott is talking about, and the genuine stamps are on something that looks more like normal paper, but that's just a guess ...
