The TIGER50 went on sale last weekend and was well received by everyone collecting or purchasing a copy.

"Just a note to say how impressed I am with the quality and layout of the T50 Tiger Book. It was a huge under-taking
on your part to produce this ‘bible’, and it was well worth the wait"


Here are a few sample pages:

170 colour pages and 140 Tigers in a hardback book with a hard card slip cover

High quality paper fitting for the occasion being celebrated

Tigers from all points on the map

Hi Graham,

Thank you very much for your reply. It is no problem for me to wait a little bit longer I just wanted to make sure that I was not forgotten.
My compliments for all the work you have done in order to make this project reality!

Best regards,

Peter

As I am picking mine up, am I still paying for postage?

The same as Peter, I am now a little confused (for a change :D )

No postage charge for you Martyn as you are collecting your copy directly from the printer. Peter on the other hand cops P&P as his copy will be winging its way to Holland!!

Indeed copies are being sent all over the place including, Canada, USA, Oz and NZ. In the case of Oz 5 books are being sent in one parcel to minimise P&P.

Ok, thanks Graham.


I forgot to mention, if there is anyone else in the Derby/Notts area that is getting a book and wants it picking up, let me know.
For that matter, anyone in the Rugby area too as I'm down there most weeks.

It will save you a few Pounds and removes any risk of damage.
