We note that Pakistan may be the only country to have issuedpostage stamps in 2 × 2, 3 × 3, 4 × 4 and 5 × 5 Latin square formats: we call such setsof stamps philatelic Latin squares (PLS). We find that a 5 × 5 PLS from Pakistan has theknight’s move or Knut Vik design as discussed, e.g., by Nissen [56] and Tedin [78], and itseems to be the only 5 × 5 PLS (from any country) with this property. We identify a 6 × 5sheet of stamps from Pakistan depicting 10 kinds of mushrooms (each repeated 3 times)and study two associated 5 × 5 Latin squares; from these findings we construct a 10 × 10“philatelic Sudoku puzzle” and give its solution. An annotated set of over 90 references,many with hyperlinks, ends the paper.KEYWORDSAsian Advertising Congress, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881–1938), Walter-Ulrich Behrens(1902–1962), block-Latin rank formula, Raj Chandra Bose (1901–1987), brickwall 10 ×10 Sudoku format, circulants, composite Latin square, experimental design, Sir RonaldAylmer Fisher (1890–1962), gerechte Latin squares, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah(1876–1948), knight’s move design, Knut Vik design, Kronecker sum, Latin rectangle,Maack: Sudoku-download, mushrooms, pandiagonal Latin square, philatelic Sudoku puzzle,philatelic Youden puzzle, postage stamps, rainbow-Latin square, rank of Latin squarematrix, Sudoku, ThinkFun: Everybody Plays, tropical fish, water birds, Frank Yates (1902–1994), William John Youden (1900–1971), Youden square.2009.1 Invited paper for the Special Silver Jubilee issue of the Pakistan Journal of Statistics: compiled September 8,© 2009 Pakistan Journal of Statistics 427
