To whom are these pages?
for Philatelists, to help them finding and indentifying stamps of unknown origin out of a catalog. and to understand them.
for globetrotters and tourists, if they do not want to travel into an asian or african country as total analphabets.
And, of course for the ones, who have no idea what those arab and chinese "curls" might possibly stand for and would like to know.
