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 would be 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.
