Fine condition - Marten Toonder - complete with all 44 picture cards
|Book Title:||Tom Poes Luteijn plakplaatjesalbum|
|Number of Books:||1|
In 1956 (version 1) and 1964 (version 2) a picture card album was published featuring all main characters from the comic books by Marten Toonder. The album has a sturdy cover and contains 11 unnumbered pages each with 4 picture cards with accompanying text, and a last page with publisher’s notes. 44 different wrappers were issued, containing picture cards of the main characters in the highly popular comics of Tom Puss and Olliver B. Bumble. The picture cards were called “Bommelplaatjes” and the candies “Bommelsnoepjes”. An album was published at the same time. The album has a story. On the inside cover is an introduction on the picture cards parade. On the first 11 pages are - as if it were a regular Tom Puss comic book - four frames at the top where the picture cards were supposed to be applied, with below them four strips of text each accompanying one picture card. The last page only has publisher’s notes. The story starts on the inside of the front cover.
A number of characters are included several times in various poses. In order to be able to see where a picture card should be placed, the frames already have some characters printed in black-and-white.
This album is still highly sought-after by Toonder collectors and, more specifically, Bommel collectors.
There are two versions:
1) oblong format (1956)
2) portrait format (1964)
This lot contains the first version in beautiful condition. Beautiful front and back, magnificent spine and beautiful bookblock. No writing or drawing. A beautiful item. It is very hard to find a copy of this book in beautiful condition. I have never seen a copy of this book in such a beautiful condition.
