The kickstarter for this project is now live here:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/re ... -1977-1985

I must say, this project looks terrific and so I have just backed it. As you might expect from a Kickstarter project, there are various levels of support you can pledge, but £75 + £15 p&P in the UK will get you a copy of the book if it reaches its funding target of £127,000 by 20th December 2020 (they're currently at £31,000 after just a couple of days), and the book itself has an estimated delivery date of March 2021.

Here's the promo video (and no, I'm not on any commission! :lol: )

As I have the Kellerman book I didn't feel that this one would be for me but after seeing the video and reading the KS I think I'm in for just one more guide book. Really impressive looking and I can imagine volume 2 will be equally as impressive if they get funded.

I'm blaming you Jeremy for this :lol:

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback here, very much appreciated. We are four days into the Kickstarter and 25% funded but still a long way to go!

We appeared Friday on Bossk's Bounty Live Stream for his YouTube channel to have a chat about the book and answer questions. Please take a look if you have the time:
