Publications

For over 75 years our members have worked to build a near comprehensive record of cards that have been issued between the end of the 19th Century and today (even today we are finding 100 year old cards that haven’t been seen before!). We have focused primarily on tobacco related cards as they were issued on a monumental scale across the globe for 50 years before the outbreak of WW2! We have also documented Trade cards too and produced the Trade Index and Handbook. All of our books are recommended to those wanting to learn more about cards and what is out there. We are always adding to this list and if there is subject that has not been covered then please just let us know and we can discuss as a council and see if it’s something we woulbe interested in documenting.

We do offer a discount on our books to members but even without the discount we think that they are very reasonably priced! If you have any questions about content please just get in touch and we are happy to advise accordingly and make sure you get a book that will suit you.

* This amended research to the Trade Index has been taking place since publication in early 2006, and includes all known additions, amendments, deletions, and corrections. It has become clear, however, that the issue regarding ‘Advertisement Cards’ needs further amendment. I stated, under ‘What is included…’ in the original Introduction ‘One-off advertising cards are generally recorded….’. But, over this period, I have been notified of a myriad of other cards which are not advertising products, including single events, theatre events, greetings, bazaars etc. The Society has discussed this issue, and agreed with the proposal I suggested that, as from now, such cards will no longer be included.
