We Love
News of this book was first announced in April 2011 with a total of 1,500 copies being published in total, 200 copies of which are special editions. Whilst both the standard and special editions have the same content, the design of the front cover differs. Each special edition is uniquely numbered. A pvc plastic film preprinted with a 3-D tram no. 168 as well as the route of the tramways is affixed to each book. The book was set for publication on 16th May, however, owing to a printing problem, it was not published until early June. Text is in both Chinese and English. All copies of the special edition were sold out soon after publication.

Having collected my book from the local Royal Mail sorting office on my way to work yesterday morning, I decided to have a sneak preview during my lunch-break, which then became a rather extended lunch-break!

The book is full of colour, interesting facts and some unusual and imaginative photography. It is well laid out and features sections about trams generally, trams around the world, collections of models, tickets, books, etc., the new tram era and a gallery of photographs under the heading Scenes, People, Trams.

I was a little concerned at the pvc plastic film around the book, as this appeared rather crumpled - only to find it was the clear thin protective film, which was easily removed, and revealed a superb 3-D effect of tram no. 168!

All in all, a superb book, written by enthusiasts and published in a very professional manner and worth every penny - or should I say dollar!
The photographs below show some sample pages.
