Some publisher should see the money in re-printing the book... it is very handsomely made, with tons of illustrations, so probably not a cheap thing to print. However, the prices they go for...

I want to point out that Gerjan is a stand-up guy and didn't gouge those of us that were fortunate enough to get a copy of the book directly from him. by any means. The high priced books are by 3rd party sellers. In the case of Amazon sellers it is clear cut gouging. With ebay, it is desperate people bidding up the prices.

I would second that.
I was able to obtain a signed copy from Gerjan as a result of his contact with this forum. He would no doubt have been aware of the massive prices being asked for this book, so he could quite easily have ramped up the price of his remaining books, to several times the asking price....and the funny thing is, well speaking for my self anyway, I would have paid the price, because the book was, & is, unique.
Cheers, Pickles.

Hello Franck,

To which email address do you want the data to be sent?
Is there a place on this website to put it to be visible to all members?

Regards,

Gerjan
