Panini Snow White Italian/French/English Albums (1980-2001)

The Snow White Panini sticker albums were first published in Italy in 1980, followed in other countries in 1983. They were reissued in 1987, 1994, and 2001. The booklets were printed in numerous languages and usually coincided with the re-release of the motion picture to cinemas or on home video. The '80 and '87 editions included two-tone color illustrations; the '94 and '01 have full-color pages. The book dimensions are approximately 9" x 11". All titles contain 36 pages (including covers). The albums for the first Snow White stickers in 1980/1983 featured 360 blank numbered spaces for the self-adhesive cards. The later editions had only 225.
