We are approaching the final leg of the 80s Casuals book saga. It must be nearly 3 years since the idea germinated into us gaining a publisher only for us to see him 'put us on the back-burner' so to speak after a year and a half due to financial constraints. Therefore we took it upon ourselves to self publish what we hope will be the definitive book on the revolutionary 1980s casual clothing period. This week sees the final visit to the designer, then the following week will see the book go into print production. This print and finishing of the book will take up to two weeks depending on the printers work load, so if all goes to plan we should have a copy 'in hands' by the weekend of 27 feb. The book will be 168 pages with a 4 page cover plus over 350 colour photographs and will have an initial run of just 2000. Cost is £20. pre-order here 
At present the only book store we have approached is Waterstones in Liverpool and they will be stocking the book with an option to take it nationally. Apart from Waterstones we will have the usual stockists of the 80s Casuals brand taking delivery.
