Wrap around, glossy hard cover A4 portrait coffee table book 

.

Almost there! Plans are in place to have our books published and received just prior to Christmas 2019.

Thanks to all swimmers for your patience and encouragement. Have received some lovely comments from those who have seen the recent draft book contents. I will bring a draft book down to the ‘Beach Hut’ cafe over the next few days (after our morning swim) for all to get a glimpse of its contents.

I’m grateful to the approx. 50 past and present swimmers who have contributed with photos and information during its development, in particular those who have been intimately involved in getting the book to where it is today. 

COST: $45 per book for a 200-page hard copy coffee table book.

You would pay approximately this amount in a book store for a similar book. It is a not for profit exercise. The price is based on artwork / graphic design and printing costs est. $7,000 + GST for the purchase of 150 books from a reputable publishing company with 30 years experience in the business and excellent referrals. I see it as solely a book for our past and present swimmers, family and friends. (Quotes obtained were as high as $85 per book based on a small print run of 150 books.)

Number of copies: Please text me on 0425254167 or email to advise if you would like a copy and the quantity.

It will be a once off print and I need to get as accurate a number as possible for purchase. (Thus far, prior to today’s post, I have been advised by; John S. 4 copies, Mike G. 3 copies, Tim M. 3 copies, Dick M. 2 copies, Garry H., Jackie G., Ross W., John L. 1 copy each.) So please let me know during the next 7 days if you would like a copy/ies.
