The album Sveriges Riksvapen, Landskaps- och Stadsvapen was issued in 1932. It was printed by Karl Lindholm in Stockholm.
The author is Friherre Harald Gustav Fleetwood (1879-1960).
Harald Gustav Fleetwood was the State Herald of Sweden from 1931-1965 and author of many heraldic papers. The album contains only the arms of provinces and towns. The stamps were issued in 8 sheets of 18 stamps each, with an additional 5 stamps with advertising.
As far as I know there have been no plans to issue a second album with personal arms as in the Norwegian album.
Unlike some other albums, there is no text on the back of the stamps.
