Dear Collecting pals,

I am very pleased to announce the availability of my new book: 'La French Touch 2016: The Definitive Guide to French vintage Star Wars collectibles 1977-1987' (unofficial book) :weeabooface:

It comes after 'Meccano to Trilogo' in 2006 (news + forum thread) and 'La French Touch' in 2013 (news + forum thread).

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.

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

Readers will enjoy the development of the merchandising and marketing associated with this world-famous license throughout 270 color pages and 1500+ stunning photographies.

It is available for order only through Amazon's CREATESPACE (prefered) at https://www.createspace.com/5746949 or main AMAZON website (link here).
