PUBLICATION DATE: FALL 2014
As you probably read before it is not possible anymore to send us information or photographs for our book: the research deadline passed in the late summer. For us the task to construct a book and text around loads of photos. We had over 1000 photographic files to work with!
Halloween - how suiting - was the deadline for the manuscript of ”Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace.” The first manuscript is sent to the publisher and from now on it takes a year to fine tune and release the book. That will be fall 2014! We know it sounds superfar away - we felt the same way! - but the bookmaking process is one that takes time. So, does this work? Well, after the first manuscript (fall 2013) a final manscript needs to be handed in at the start of 2014. Then six months before the release the layout will be designed. The cover for the book will be published by now too. Finally, a period of proof-reading follows until the final publication date in the fall of 2014. See it this way: by then it could be an idea for a Christmas gift ;)
We are looking forward to the result as well - we even feel a little nervous! Thanks a lot for all your great support the past months and your patience. In return, we will make sure you all know by time when our book meets its launch - don’t worry!

CONTRIBUTING PHOTOS POSSIBLE TILL SUMMER
Dear fans! We often get questions if people are ‘too late to contribute’. The short answer: Not at all! You can send us photos, scans, stories, memorabilia, clubflyers, scans of mailorder catalogues, tips, weblinks, etc .. until the summer! Preferably sooner, since we have a lot of material to process. So get to your emailaccount and send your stuff! Send us the biggest scan of the photo (or negative) - we need the highest possible quality as far as that is possible for old photography.
Countries we are looking information of:
We would like to cover as many countries as possible, so please don’t hesitate to write us if you know more about the following countries:
