Robert Verbeek of ABBA Plaza fame has written a book about ABBA fandom. From his press release:
"What does it mean to be an ABBA fan? What was (and still is) the impact
on someone’s life? Some subjects covered in the book are: why is ABBA
so good, collecting ABBA items, creating websites, visiting fan club
conventions, releasing bootleg albums, meeting ABBA, working for ABBA,
editorials and much, much more.
It's a personal book about my ABBA fandom, but if you read it, it will remind you of the effect that ABBA has on YOU.
The book will be available in English and in Dutch (title: ABBA & Ik). It's a 15.6 cm x 23.4 cm paperback of 190 pages with a glossy full colour cover and lots of photographs in black and white. The book will be published in April 2008 and will be available through my ABBA Plaza site. The proposed price is € 18 (excl. shipping and handling).
Are you curious yet? Feel free to read the previews here. "
Sounds like a very interesting book, Robert. I'm looking forward to reading it.
