Hey Melody,

mine's copy number 45. It wasn't cheap, but I had to get a copy as there's a pic in there of Steve with one of the first instruments I made for him - a 2 string diddley bow (duo bow?) made out of a floorboard!

Its a really nice scrapbook isn't it, and they are all hand made and a bit different.

Cheers, davey.

Hey Bluesman,

these were in the online shop for a very short while a few years ago - I reckon about 2008 / 2009.

They really were hand made and I believe were intended as give aways to record execs, journalists etc. All were signed on the back and individually numbered, and I think the palm print on the back is from the man himself. A small number were left over and were available in the web shop (a cheaper printed reproduction was available for a little longer).

They turn up on eBay from time to time. I think the handmade ones have two short ring binds, but although I've not seen one of the printed repros in the flesh I seem to recall they have one long ring bind instead.

If any come up on ebay its well worth checking which edition it is - hand made or printed. Because of the confusion between the two editions I've seen hand mades go very cheap and printed repros going very expensive!

Cheers, davey.

These were a pet project of mine and Chris Hopewell from Collision Films and Jacknife Posters. I designed the layout etc, then we built them by hand down in Bristol at Chris' studio, taking advantage of some of his work experience kids, hah. Chris designed and hand screen-printed the covers.

They are all signed by Steve, but the Palm print is from whoever 'finished' each book. Usually Chris or I.

Hope I'm not breaking the mystique, but I think it's pretty obvious that Steve didn't sit for a week making each one himself. But he was involved and obviously all the 'ephemera' inside is from him.

Not many of these were sold to the public, so you're very lucky if you've got one of the hand-made A3 sized ones. :)
