The 2014 3rd edition represents a thorough revising and a significant expansion of the 7 year old 2nd edition. It contains nearly 550 new photographs showing over 600 new items, all in full color. The page count has increased by nearly 50, with each and every of the third edition's 301 pages freshly designed and laid out. If you enjoy the amazing creativity, the rich design elements and the history of Halloween collectibles as so many of us do, you will love browsing the pages and viewing the thousands of items that may bring back warm memories of your own holidays past. This enhanced reference work is a must-have addition to the libraries of collectors at all levels. I have retained those data-rich elements you have come to expect from my years of collecting, researching and writing about the incredible memorabilia related to this fun holiday. Each professionally photographed item is fully captioned - including data such as where and when the item was made, which company made it, manufacturing marks, measurements to the nearest 1/4 inch, a Relative Scarcity Index number, a current market value and additional notes on reproduction alerts, item iterations and other informative data. The specificity of the captioning has been greatly expanded. I was fortunate to have Matthew Kirscht, a New Orleans-based fine artist, not only design each page, making the layout more engaging and logical, but also to have him contribute customized, supplemental artwork throughout the book that lends it a fresh look given his distinctive style. You won't find generic clip-art anywhere in this new edition. I am so grateful for the positive book reviews I have received from collectors at all levels from around the world. I hope you enjoy Vintage Halloween Collectibles as much as I have enjoyed creating it! The book you order will be signed by me. Buyers will also receive a new copy of a hard-to-find reference I used in writing all my books: Holiday Paper Honeycomb by Jeannette Lasansky.
