With an unusual playfulness, wit and sense for the combination of colours, fonts, shapes and word order, all this wrapped in a premium hardcover book that will stand out in your library.


Our favourite bits and pieces?

The Shape of a Match Box

The outer cardboard cover protects the binding and also humorously imitates a matchbox with a cutter and a sticker. So exactly as they were originally made.

More than 600 carefully selected designs

In the book you will find a selection of our favourites from our original collection of more than 30,000 motifs.

Honest materials

We have chosen structured Eco paper so that you can experience every turn of the page from the book. Thanks to the canvas binding with letter press and embossing on the title cover, it will be love at first sight

With respect to traditional craftsmanship

The front of the outer cardboard packaging is hand-printed in letterpress - the same technology as the former stickers. This enhances the period character and gives you the impression of going back in time. All this on period paper, more than 50 years old.

A collection like no other

All stickers come from a conscientiously collected collection of tens of thousands of motifs. Each sticker went through our hands several times before it was shortlisted.
