Vita Nova postcards

One of the many items of merchandising that was on the market in Holland during Thunderbirds' heyday in the 60s was a set of picture postcards manufactured by the Spanjersberg Bros. company in Rotterdam and sold under the 'Vita Nova' moniker. Later, in 1968, Spanjersberg gave Captain Scarlet the same treatment when that series was running – however briefly – on Dutch television and published a similar set. Since they were made in Holland, I suspect they were seldom seen outside the country.
