    FIRST SPANISH BOOK OF CAMOUFLAGE

    Post by alltoursnatives on Thu Dec 17, 2009 5:00 pm

    Gentlemens
    A short mail to let you know that finally I wrote the first brief study about the spanish camouflage uniforms (165 pag. with more than 400 pictures). Check my website

    http://perso.wanadoo.es/camouniforms/PRESENTACION.htm

    I don´t know what happened with the site alltoursnatives.tk, but you can find the web in the link above

    All the best

    Hi Steve!
    thanks a lot!. I must contact now with some editorials in Spain. I have just a few copies (9) in a "first edition" for spanish collectors, because it´s really very expensive (in lux paper -100 grms - hight resolutions pictures the net price for copy is 86,70 € , and the cheapest option is in paper 80 grs - hight resolutions pictures, with a net price of 69,50 €, plus shipping -it´s 165 pages in DIN-A4 format), so will be better wait a few.

    Take care and THANKS!!

    Have you considered copyrighting it, putting it on cd in adobe acrobat? This would reduce costs tremendously.

    hi Chris
    Yes, this is the "B - option" but the book it´s heavy enought and I have troubles when I converted the word in pdf. I´m talking about with a designer to try to make the CD´s. I have the copyright and this is a cheapest option but... i prefer the book ;-)

    Santiago,

    I have a lot of experience with printing specialized books here in the US. I have never done a full color publication, but I would be interested in helping with this. I can also have the text translated to English by a Spanish Army friend of mine who is also a collector (WW2 stuff). He speaks fluent English and can translate technical language without errors.

    Just some ideas Very Happy

    Wow Steve, that´s sound great!! I´m absolutelly sure that this short work is very very interested (I told with a lot of veterans and have very interested informations about the uniforms, some of them really amazings (The official or unnofficial names of some of them) and probably some patterns that just a few of collectors know (i.e. the new M-08 an urban camouflage uniform used for the GEO -really very hard to see and obviously impossible to obtain :-( ). If your friend can translade spanish - english shall be excellent, so just give time to think about it

    Thanks for your cooperation Steve !!

    OK! When you want to talk about this more Santiago, just email me or send a private message through this Forum. I will be happy to discuss details with you. Translations will not be a problem. My friend has also written books and articles in Spanish, so he is familiar with this type of work.

    Cheers,

    "Lo cortés no quita lo valiente". Pese a nuestras diferencias te felicito, quizás tenga algo de material que tu no tienes y no me importa cedértelo para tu libro.

    Ok, even we have our differences, I have to congratulate you. Even if you need any help with patterns of my own you need for your book I don´t mind to give you the information and photos. Of course I don´t need to appear in book, just free information or database. As much complete it is, better for every uniform lovers, and I am not interested in nothing more than being useful, not any mention to my name if needed anything.

    I am actually working with Spanish Lergion museum of Spanish Brigade, perhaps I am keeping most my collection there (not like a present, but like a temporary cesion and collaborate with them in documentation register, talked aswell of possibility of writting a book about Legion Uniform and emblems history)

    Congratulations

    Gracias Solideo, cualquier ayuda siempre será bienvenida!!. Ha sido muchos años de busqueda y quiero que sea el punto de partida para ordenar y clasificar los diferentes modelos de uniformes camuflados en España. Excelente idea la de la cesión de tu magnífica colección. En ningún sitio mejor que en un museo.
    Cuídate mucho!!

    Solideo Thanks, any help is always welcome!. It had been a lot of years searching the different spanish patterns as well as information and I would likt that this book shall be the starting point to sort and classify the different camouflage patterns in Spain.
    A temporal cesion is an excellent idea also for your amazing collection. Nowhere better than in a museum.
    Take care!
