A NEW Coventry sticker album has been created to celebrate the city’s landmarks and attractions.

Owner of crafts business Etch & Pin, Aaron Ashmore, believes the album is a fun way of educating people about Coventry’s history and culture.

The album brings together 100 stickers depicting famous locations and features from across the city over 28 pages.

These will be released across 11 sticker packs over the course of the next year.

Mr Ashmore said: “I’m sure many of you collected stickers when you were younger but may have stopped as you grew older.

“This is your chance to reconnect with your youth and remember the satisfaction of completing a sticker book whilst celebrating the city of Coventry at the same time.

“A recent study found that it costs over £700 to complete the average sticker book – ours costs a small fraction of that and is just as satisfying to complete.

“The project has been a huge task to complete however it’s impossible not to be proud when sticking the stickers in the book and seeing the completed version!”

The album includes a pull-out poster of Coventry’s skyline that has spaces for seven special ‘shinies’ that will be randomly dropped into packs across the year.

Etch & Pin is also responsible for a series of Coventry pin badges that have been released every month since last July, celebrating landmarks such as Coventry Ring Road, Lady Godiva and Coventry Cathedral.

Th series raised over £2,000 for 12 charities, including the Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind, Shine a Light Support Service and Coventry and Warwickshire YMCA.
