Before leaving pointed comments about someone.....especially someone who's done a great deal for the hobby maybe put your real name by your post. That's for the first two posters. And maybe let us know when your reference material will hit the shelves......

Last time I talked with Bob, he said that he was having trouble locating a publisher. I asked him if he thought of maybe making a PDF instead. I would gladly pay for the PDF.

I did my book through lulu.com. it might be a option for Bob. Amazon has a service as well I think. Books are more desirable than PDF's to me although I did both happy.gif. There are also a number of nice hobby books out of Canada on the sports side, I could get info on the publisher there if desired.

Maybe Bob hasn't produced his silk book because another has appeared on the scene in the meantime.
Alan Stevens, via The Cartophilic Society, produced a comprehensive work in 2007 and a revised version was published less than a year ago. This lists every known silk issue from around the world (yes including USA)with the caption of each and every item. It includes silks from South America, Australia and Europe (notably UK, Netherlands and Germany)with many colour illustrations.
Incidentally, may I point out that additions and corrections to my U.S. "N" issues can now be viewed on-line correct to the end of last year.
All these things can be viewed on Card-World.co.uk - just follow the thread to Reference Books - Publications.

Bob's Book

Maybe I've got it wrong, but I was under the impression that Bob's book would be on Tobacco Premiums, not just silks. So it would include silks, leathers, felts, blankets, etc. A book I'd love to see, by the way. - Jack J.

Jack......you're correct. And, like American Tobacco Cards, it just focuses on American issues.

Round tuit

No score for this post
February 5 2017, 2:33 PM 

I'm not sure someone saying they're working on a book that they hope to publish constitutes a "promise", especially if no one has paid deposits or pre-ordered. I love such books myself, but I know they are a lot of work. And even if he does sell it, the amount made isn't going to pay very much for the time invested in the project. So I would appreciate if it gets done, be disappointed if it doesn't, but I'd certainly understand if he never gets a "round tuit".

I love Bob's "American Tobacco Cards" and keep hoping he'll do a follow-up which covers the T200s, 300s, and 400s. Some of those issues... particularly the T300s... have remained a mystery and are mostly unknown.

I just picked this up from the UK side of the hobby. It's the book that Martin mentioned above. Wow. If you collect silks it would be crazy to not have this piece of reference material. It doesn't have Bob Forbes-esque descriptions for each set but it covers every silk issue for the entire globe. Well worth the money folks.
