How big is the book?

Huge! The book is 426 pages, 450mm high by 460mm wide with a thickness of 5mm and weighs 2.5kg. It is a tome to the Aussie milk bar.

Who published the book?

The book is self published via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in 2018. The book is an independent publication which was written, photographed, designed and researched by Eamon Donnelly since 2012. It is not attached to a publisher or distributor so when you buy the book you are 100% supporting the author.

How many copies were printed?

The book was a limited small print run of only 1000 copies, 600 of which were already pre-sold through the Kickstarter campaign in 2018 and pre-orders since the campaign ended in April 2018.

Was the book printed offshore?

The book is proudly printed and bound in Melbourne, Australia by Ellikon Fine Printers. This is an Australian story and I am so proud that the book has been 100% Made in Australia. Fun fact: Ellikon is behind the old MacRobertson's Chocolate's factory in Collingwood, the inventor of the Freddo Frog! 

Will there be a second edition?
