Welcome to the third edition of my Collectibles Price Guide, published in association with Dorling Kindersley. Over the thirty years that I have been collecting and writing about collectibles, I have found this market to be one of the most exciting and innovative areas around. Constantly expanding to take in new areas as well as developments in more established subjects, it is not surprising that it has become one of the most popular hobbies in the world. By publishing our price guides annually and by covering a completely new selection of collectibles in each edition, we are able to reflect this innovation and growth by covering a huge range of subjects - presented this year across more than 65 subject headings. As well as more traditional subject areas, such as potlids and posters, we cover a number of newer areas such as men's clothing, character collectibles, early computers, and contemporary glass. Each image is specially commissioned in full-color and you can learn more about many items from the numerous footnotes and 'Closer Look' features, as well as discovering other useful resources through 'Find out more'. With this much change every year, I'm sure you'll agree with me that our Collectibles Price Guides build up over the years to become an invaluable reference library for experienced and new collectors alike.
