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.

What type of packaging is the book shipped in?

Each book is bubble wrapped inside a sturdy cardboard foldable book mailer, which is then placed inside a larger box. The book comes with complimentary mixed lollies book marks.

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 over the last 6-7 years. It is not attached to a publisher or distributor so when you buy the book you are 100% supporting the author.

How many copies are printed?

Limited Stock left! The book is 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. So get in quick before they all sell out!

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?

I would love this book to be reprinted but unfortunately at this stage there is no plan to do a second run, unless the book gets picked up by a publisher.

Each book comes signed by Eamon Donnelly.
