Last chance for Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1

June 11, 2019

As you may be aware, our next release entitled Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1 is at the printer

We did the press checks yesterday (Monday, June 10) and we will begin shipping this book shortly!

Based upon level of support for several of our book projects over the past few years...

... and with the Speed Graphics series well underway, it’s our belief that you won’t want a hole in your collection.

To recap, we began taking orders for Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1 this past January and our all-inclusive pre-publication offer of $69.95 expired April 30. As we presume you received our flyer in the mail and/or mentions of the offer by email, our thought is that you somehow overlooked the deadline and are now wondering if it’s too late to place an order—given that the books are about to ship and supplies are limited.

And that’s understandably a valid concern, given this development:

Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 2 announced

If you haven’t already seen, we’ve uploaded a preview of content for the next volume in the Speed Graphics series.

One more thing...

We’d like to point something out concerning the print run of Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1—we have only asked for sufficient quantities from the printer and bindery to cover individual pre-orders received plus an allowance for retailers. After that, anyone desiring a copy is subject to the whims of the printer and bindery (i.e. whether or not they honour our request to supply “overs”).

Canadian Pacific 1950s Galt Subdivision colour movie footage

You probably are aware of our special bonus content for buyers of Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1. Whoever purchases this book receives EXCLUSIVE access to a 45-minute video of CPR steam and diesel action on the Galt Subdivision in Ontario during the 1950s. This rare video footage is not available separately—it is only for direct purchasers of Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1.

Readers are already enjoying this video and offering enthusiastic feedback—even before receiving their new book!

To avoid disappointment...
