PostPosted: Jan 18, 2013 06:13    Post subject: Gold for Collectors - The Book  

Dear gold collector and/or dealer

We are preparing a book about gold, the name of the book will be “Gold for Collectors”. It will have about 300 pages and be in a large format: 23x32 cm., very high quality paper, printing, binding, photos and text. In the attached slide presentation you can see some of the photos from the book.

We will print 2000 copies in the standard edition, we will also print a special luxury edition, leather binding, numbered for bibliophiles consisting of only 30 copies.

We already have a lot of photos and we are working in the text. If you have any interesting gold specimen that you consider suitable for this book, please contact us. We can take photos of your pieces during the 2013 Tucson Show, we will be in the Tucson City Center Hotel (former Inn Suites), our room will be number 506. You can contact us in our room or also contact us via the “Jungle Buyer” (Alejandro Stern's room 245).

You can also help with the book by sponsoring pages. Ask us how.

See you soon in Tucson!

Joaquim Callén
P.S.: I can also travel to take photos of gold in your collection.

To see it click on the image or in this link and you will access to the PPS with all the images

After checking with the author, Joaquim Callén, the people who can have it for sale (if they have not finished it) are:

Gloria Staebler - Lithographie
Wayne and Dona Leicht
Ian Bruce
Lapis
Louis-Dominique Bayle - Le Règne Minéral

Thank you Jordi,
I will follow your suggestions, in Europe first, because of shipping/duty cost.

Best Regards,
Max

As far as I can tell, none of those listed above advertised the book for sale. I wrote several an email asking - still waiting for a reply. But since the book sold out so quickly, why doesn't Joaquim Callén have it reprinted?! There is obviously the demand for even a larger second printing.....
