'Star Wars New Zealand' book. Coming Soon.

Post by MattG »

As many may know, the http://www.SWNZ.co.nz website contains a comprehensive archive of Star Wars collectibles in New Zealand that was one of the earliest and main features when everything was set up in its current format in 2003. About a year ago I started a project to turn that material in to a physical book, and it's coming together to the point where I can mention it publicly to advertise it and gauge interest :)

'The History of Star Wars Collecting in New Zealand' will be a chronological journey through the history of New Zealand-specific Star Wars collectibles and related milestones. It is on track for a Q2 2016 release, with pricing and preordering information available in Q1. It is the product of 13 years of research, and nearly four decades of collecting. Every photo is new.

Stay tuned for more :)

Yep , definitely will buy one. Good job on setting this up.
Let me know how can we contribute to the effort.

Thanks for the support guys. It has been progressing in a non-linear fashion, but I'll post sample pages here when I have them available.
