In the University of Groningen Library City Centre, a colourful selection of albums for picture cards is now on show, published in the Netherlands over the last hundred years that have been added to collection of the University Library of Groningen.
Around 500 companies from a wide variety of sectors published over 2,000 albums, including: Verkade, Douwe Egberts, King, Droste, Plus, Albert Heijn, Hooijmer, Hille and Keg, but also broadcasting corporations such as AVRO. Those who purchased a company’s product received a card with a picture as a gift. A complete set could then fill an album. The pictures were illustrations to the story in the book, so in a way buyers completed their own books.
