Dear friends and fellow collectors,

A quick announcement for those you don't know about it, or haven't made their decision yet  Wink

'FRENCH TOUCH 2016: The Definitive Guide to French vintage Star Wars collectibles 1977-1987' (unofficial book) is available on Amazon ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) and Createspace ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).

This edition is the MOST comprehensive and yet-complete book about vintage Star Wars collectibles from France. It comes with a stunning new cover giving a glimpse of the products categories inside, and 30 additional pages (compared to the original 2013 edition) with amazing material.

The book reviews the history and individual product photography of the entire range of French merchandise released from 1977 to 1987 – some heretofore unreferenced or thought to exist only in myth, including as well the French MECCANO and European TRILOGO toys lines. It also re-examines the response the original Star Wars movies received in France, through a wide selection of press and documentary references. Readers will enjoy the development of the merchandising and marketing associated with this world-famous license throughout 270 color pages and 1500+ stunning photographies.

For those who already own the 2013 first edition, the 2016 update is composed of additional and rare items, and reviews, added in the various chapters, totaling 30 additional pages at the end. I also took that opportunity to enhance some page layouts.

This time no direct order from me, but I will gladly sign your book next time we met  Wink

Here are some sample pages  What a Face
