Today I received my copy of a wonderfull NeXT book from Italy:

"Inside NeXT"
Guide to Black Hardware

The quality is superb and it was made with love from the author. It is a wonderfull book!

The first edition of this book was printed in a limited editon (only 50 copies, only in Italian language: a small edition for italian enthusiasts of NeXT Computers).

But the author (Luciano) wrote me, that he is willing to make an international version (in english) of the book if he has enough international bookings!

The international version of the book will be translated by an interpreter, will have a hard cover and a few more pages (dedicated to repairs of the NeXTstation). To cover the printing costs of an English version it needs about 40 or 50 orders of the book.

So if You are interested, send me a PM with You email-Adress and I will pass this to Luciano.

Hello NeXT Community: I also just sent an email to Luciano offering to buy 30 copies for distribution here in advance if the translated version and may be help with the translation. My sister is fluent in Italian , she and her lived in Italy for 6 years, I have not told Luciano yet as this is all fluid . So my thought is he would be able to ship them here than I would turn around and ship them US Media or other preference mail.  I'm not sure of the list price but we will cross that bridge when we come to it and I won't mark it up much just enough to cover expenses.  :) Best regards Rob

Quote from: "Rob Blessin Black Hole"So my thought is he would be able to ship them here than I would turn around and ship them US Media or other preference mail.

Another thought would be to have it printed in the USA, then shipped from here.  Maybe that would be cheaper; I would be happy to help out if the printer were near me, or if the lot were shipped to me.

Hi.

Luciano wrote me that he would like the English version of his book to have a hard cover and improved printing for better durability and exclusiveness. For this he would need at least 100 subscribers, e.g. 50 from Italy + 50 from ROW.

I guess we need a public web space and have to put up a nice web page to promote the book. :arrow: Who can help?

Best Regards, bobo68
