The situation as regards the best reference catalog for this area is very similar to that reported for Italy proper: Sassone and Unificato have their appeal, depending on how specialized you want to be. No major book has been written in recent times on the stamps of the Vatican City. Nevertheless, there is confirmed news that a highly respected scholar is filling the gap in a very authoritative manner; the volume is expected to be bilingual.
