This book is definitely a must have for the collector. Jo Slee worked with The Smiths and Moz for years. Very sweet and kind woman. As I understand there were only 1000 hardback covers issued. I am not sure how many soft covers there were, but there has only been one pressing of the book and I doubt there will be another. Beau, anything to add to that?? Cheers!
Overall I don't think it sold very well. I knew someone who bought a stack on the clearance table of a Barnes & Noble type giant bookseller. I bought my hardbound version right here on the M-Solo Marketplace for like 15 quid from a nice UK girl.
I heard that Jo Slee herself only got 2 copies of the hardbound.
I picked mine up from a clearance book shop, they had stacks of them (bugger eh) so I suppose they probably pulped what was left because it does take up quite some shelf space compared to the usual trash they have.
I haven't got a hardback though unfortunately, bit like rockin horse shit these days.
I'm hoping I've done a Beau & shakin the tree by that last comment?
C'mon ebayers get them out!
I purchased a softcover for about US$120 several months ago from eBay, and it was well worth the money I paid as it is in brilliant condition. I've seen others go from anywhere between 50 and 75 Pounds Sterling there.
