Has anyone else out there ordered Jeff Bond's book on Irwin Allen? I think it is awesome! I never saw any other book as lavishly illustrated as this. If you like Allen's product; any of them, this book is for you. Give it a try.

This is truly a book of epic proportions and awesome accomplishment. If you dig any of Allen’s major properties, there’s at least 50 lavish pages to enjoy. I can’t believe this hasn’t sold out yet, but it’s close.
Check out the trailer for the book on YouTube; Johnny’s music along plays well!

Can just imagine how a tome that heavy would cost to import to the UK, though call me blind but I couldn't see any shipping rates.

It's a beauty though.

I hope that every chapter has a ridiculously dramatic ending.

Creature Features are also selling it via ebay - you're basically looking at £120 upwards. I really, really want it myself, but I just can't afford that.

That is crazy money.

Yeah - it's as much for shipping as it is for the book really. I understand - it looks heavy AF like a Taschen - but it's unfortunate, and I guess there are no shops left here to import for us (Cinema Store might have, once, but then again they'd have added the import cost to it in store).

120? Yikes. Even for a good one - it's a bit to much. Well, if the book is that good, then maybe it makes sense to buy it. I would just like to use it to write my student paper with the help of https://writix.co.uk/buy-assignment-online so I try to not think about the price. But thanks for the review because based on it, I guess it is good.

$120 is for the signed copies with signatures by Mr. Bond and Bill Mumy. Unsigned is half that. The book is outstanding and the perfect companion reading to the Irwin Allen film and TV scores.

Does every chapter have a ridiculously dramatic ending, to reflect the pre-commercial-break stingers of the TV shows?

Overseas shipping is unfortunately too expensive!

I believe it's now sold out.

Wow, I just got mine under the wire then.

I'm absolutely gutted about this ...maybe if my TV show had gotten made last year I could have afforded the import *cries for several reasons*

Maybe there might be a smaller sized re-issue one day, like Taschen have done with their Kubrick Archives and other books? Or even a PDF copy for sale, I'd be happy(ish) with that.
