souvenir album

A philatelic product of the post office in past times is the First Day of Issue souvenir album.

From examples I've seen, souvenir albums were issued from the 1950s to the first half of the 1970s.

The pages were bound by a ribbon, with the cover illustrated. Inside were the particulars of the issue and, of course, the stamp or set cancelled on the first day.
