The price of the soft back will vary slightly between countries, but is based on £20 for UK customers. Lulu charges postage at local rates per country. If you are not happy with a soft back; there is likely to be a hardback version, but it’s too early to be certain.
“Ordered, thanks for making this available from Lulu for those of us not in the UK. I was very happy with your last book printed by them.”
The biggest story of the year so far is the news that ‘Music by John Barry’, a new book in praise of more than forty of his film scores, is close to publication! Sources close to the project tell us that this near 500-page book is the best work so far from the three scribes.
The five-hundred page book, fully-illustrated (often with rarely seen images), consists of a chronological exploration of key landmarks underpinning John Barry’s illustrious career.
Written in the form of extensively researched essays concentrating on one specific score, over forty are represented, from the first, Beat Girl, to the last, Enigma. Whether highly acclaimed or lower key films, each chapter sets out, clearly and accurately, the circumstances surrounding the inception and completion of the score under scrutiny and in doing so, provides fresh insights into John Barry’s remarkable legacy.
Our Redcliffe published book “Music by John Barry” has sold out. However, we have made available a print-on-demand version with identical internal content. The difference is the absence of a dust-jacket for the print-on-demand version.
The cost of the book depends on your location; for guidance:
£35 for UK customers,
€ 37 for those in the EU
$39 for US customers
Postage will be charged at a rate local for the country concerned.
