The proof-reading and correction of punctuation/ technical errors is nearly complete and the book will be going to the printers next week.

The first copies of the book will be available on Drive It Day in Victoria Square in Birmingham (22 April) with copies orderable from this website for postal delivery from that day. The book will also be available through bookshops shortly after.

We have now tested the book for electronic book format publishing onto the Amazon Kindle and it is looking very good. The pictures come across clearly and the format of the book suits the size and proportions of the Kindle screen.

As it has worked so well we will be publishing the electronic version of the book side-by-side with the paperback in April. We will also be producing a hardback version to suit demand so, if you are interested in a hardback version please let us know via the email link on the Shop page.

We now have our ISBN number for the book and are scouting around the printers in readiness for the first print run in March.

Still dotting i's and crossing t's.

There are two marques that are proving tough nuts to crack. If anyone knows anything about the 'Ideal' produced by F.R.Bee and Co or the 'Bailey' please get in touch.
