1951 Edizioni Lampo Sticker Album - Italy

Published in 1951 by Italian publisher Edizioni Lampo, this Biancaneve e i sette nani "sticker" album contains 240 numbered spaces for the collectible multicolored cards (figurines) that were produced in this series. The cards were not self-adhesive and so a glue would be needed to apply them to the book. A total of 36 pages (including covers). Album size 24 x 33.8cm; card sizes 7.3 x 5.3cm.

Front cover art by Corbella.

Original sticker envelopes from 1951 and 1962.


In 1962, it was reissued by Edizioni Lampo in Italy. It had a new cover illustration--the movie poster art of Bruno Napoli. Slightly smaller dimensions at 31 x 22cm. Then 1968 saw another modification to the Italian cover. Snow White and the Prince now looked more like Disneyland cast members than animated characters. The publisher "Edizioni Lampo" had changed their name to "Editrice Moderna". They would continue to print Disney stickers albums up until 1977 when Panini entered the field.

Special thanks to Nunziante Valoroso for supplying valuable information and additional images for this post.

The sticker album and cards were issued in other countries too. See some examples in the next Archive entry.
