I have already pre-ordered two copies and Kim mentioned Ben was in talks to get these bulk shipped; happy for my two copies to be added to a bulk shipment.

Keep us all posted Richard on what happens with this order and I guess use the members who've show interest in a copy as to the number of books to order.

look forward to seeing this :D

Just heard from Kim after reading the interview. The hardcopy was going to push the price up and they're now not going with that option as he is keen on keeping the cost down. It will be perfect binded with a twist. He is looking at a 7 volume special slip sleeve in the future to house all the volumes when done.

That's a real shame I think Hardback would be the way to with a book like this but nevermind, whats a binded with a twist..? surly not the spiral down the spine that allows for the page to be fully turned over..?? that would look absolutely shite..!!!

I agree, I would much prefer a hardback. If it is spiral-bound, like many calendars, I'm not sure I would still want one. Spiral binding is far too easily damaged, a nightmare to try to get back into shape if it gets squashed (which it very easily can be, especially in the post), and also looks cheap and nasty on book publications. I hope Kim reconsiders if he is switching away from a hardback.

Yes, that is the correct description of a spiral bound book.

I am waiting on a reply from kim but I have read that the book is "Perfect Bound" which is paperback with a glossy cover like the old Tomart's price guides, while I would rather Hardback I can live with this, but not spiral bound I do not know anyone that would choose that for a publication it's more like what you would use for a school project and looks cheap and nasty.

Just heard back from Kim and it's NOT spiral bound (Thank God)...! It will be as explained above paperback with a Glossy cover like the old Tomart's price guides.

That’s great news.
I would have preferred a hard back, but understand that this may make it too expensive to manufacture.
I’m still in if it’s paperback with a great cover.

Agreed that is great news, and I too am still on board for buying one if it's paperback and not spiral bound.
