Verkade albums were created in 1903 when Verkade started adding picture cards to its products that could be pasted into special albums. It started with three ‘Sprookjesalbums’, with picture cards that were bought in Germany. It was a great success and Verkade decided to publish more albums about various aspects of nature and landscapes in the Netherlands.
