If you are curious about anything to do with cards and how to collect them, please contact us on the form which appears on this page. We will write back to you as soon as we can, depending on if we immediately know the answer, have to contact a more knowledgeable colleague, or have to consult our libraries.

We collect all manner of cards issued with tobacco or other products, of all ages from the end of the 19th century to yesterday. This site is aimed at anyone with an interest in any cards, whether they are a beginner or a long time collector, and if there is something that you want to see but can’t – please just let us know!

Our aim to to make this site be a showcase for all the great work that’s been done over the last 80 years, and is still taking place. It is also designed to let the general public have an inside into what we do.
