The story of the Brooklin Collectors Guide.
It all started in 2012 when I decided to take pictures of my Brooklin collection models (over 1000 pieces) and I said to myself: why not add descriptions and make a book for collectors? A great help for the text was given by Roger Mateo of the SFBBC. Therefore, I put together the first edition of the Brooklin Illustrated Collectors Guide, which took me several months of work. I printed 100 copies in September 2012 which were sold to collectors all over the world and were highly appreciated. Upon request of many collectors I printed an updated version in 2014 and the third edition in 2016. Last year mr. Bulgari saw my guide, he liked it a lot and wanted to make a book out of it. So I worked closely with them reviewing and updating the guide (again with several months of work) and we printed the fourth edition.
Now to the point. I collect only American cars and this is why the guide contains only Brooklin models, but we called it Volume 1 because we plan to make Volume 2 with all Brooklin production. I cannot say when, also because of this terrible situation we have, bu it will eventually be made. So be patient and let's hope in the future.
