I will be publishing Chris Brooker's new series of books, covering cloth and metal badges of the 1920-unification era.
The series will cover 7 volumes with each volume running 225 pages. I plan on printing these, two volumes at a time, with an interval of 2-4 months between volumes. They will be available by volume so there is no need to purchase the entire set. Each volume will be 7 x 9 1/2 inches. The prices to be $39.95 (softcover) and $59.95 (hardcover)
The books will illustrate many of the badges with front and rear photos. In adddition each badge has an estimated price, obviously valid at time of printing. Thumb-nail histories of the units are also included.
I signed off on the proofs over the weekend for Volumes 1 & 2 and expect delivery to my Ottawa warehouse in 6-8 weeks. The books will, literally, be on a slow boat from China.There will be 200 hard cover copies and 800 paperback copies for each volume.
I will be accepting orders once the books hit Vancouver and will be able to ship a week after that. Your specialty militaria store may have copies available (Marway, Army Outfitters and a few others are loyal re-sellers) or you can order on-line once I announce their availability.
