This is the homepage of PaperQuest Press, dedicated to the publication of collector handbooks in the area of fish & game stamps and licenses. The author/editor/publisher is Ira Cotton, five-time president of the National Duck Stamp Collectors Society (www.NDSCS.org) and a frequent writer about fish and game stamps. Twelve F&G handbooks have been published so far, including a joint publication with the NDSCS.

In addition, PaperQuestPress distributes copies of The Duck Stamp Story, published by Krause Publications.

Finally, we also edit and/or publish other collector books, including two philatelic books by Terence Hines.
