I’m pleased to report that my copy of "Saab Sonett No. 4" has arrived in the mail today. I’ll be having a good read tonight and posting my thoughts on it tomorrow.
You can read the introductory piece by clicking here.
Remember, there’s only 350 of these English language first editions out there and when I last heard, John from Elkparts only had 25 left. And that was a few weeks ago.
It’s not an inexpensive book for the size (94 pages about 20cm x 20cm), but first impressions tell me that it is a beautifully produced work and it’s subject matter and rarity make it well and truly worth your consideration. The sticker on the plastic covering is worth retaining too – "Saab Festival 2005 – Winner of First Price in categorie Saab Sonett". I think it’s supposed to say "First Prize", but you get the drift.
Grab your copy while they’re hot: Saab Sonett No4 – available at Elkparts. A rare first edition book about a very rare car.
