Sorry, don't have a copy of the Illustrated Guide, so can't help. Has always been on my list of things to pick up cheap second hand.

I am sure he would throw it in for free if you brought the fireplace at £70,000!



Ugh. The fireplace - Complete junk. I really hope that no one ever buys that piece of worthless scrap.

Printed version of the PIR jacket... Came out pretty well. Colours are always a bit tricky when you don't have a printer on-hand to test the colours against, so the blue is a bit lighter than the actual boards, but that's no great drama, and I'm pleased with the result.

I do wish the buying market was wider. We have two sources and eBay. No one seems in a rush to buy or sell really, at least that is my impression after entering this hobby 14 months ago.


I don't know about only two sources. Abebooks has a lot of sellers, plus eBay and some other regional auction sites.

Prices seem to have dropped, but I'd agree that supply is also low. It is an odd market, but probably what is to be expected. There are very few people with any urgency to buy (so prices have correspondingly come off the boil), but the mass of people who purchased post-movies haven't reached the point they particularly need/want to sell, either. A lot of books may gather dust for a while before they come back on the market. It is no drama for anyone that is into the collecting game for the long haul :)
