Perhaps some signed versions could be done specifically for Forum Members?  After all, we are the ones who have kept Follyfoot alive.

Now that would be a coup.......

I'm with you there, Hellie.  It would be a lovely recognition of over 35 years of loyalty to Follyfoot and the cast.

Hello Everyone - Barney speaking!

I just wanted to provide the latest update to you all on the new book - Follyfoot Remembered written by Jane Royston.  The book is virtually complete, and will be sent to the publishers early in the new year.  I will be able to let you know the actual publishing date nearer the time, but we are on track for Spring 2010!  Can't wait!!

I will keep you all updated as soon as more information becomes available.

Best regards - Barney

As Spring is very near now, I hope there are good news from the Follyfoot book soon!
I´m really looking forward to the book, because it surely will tell me things about Follyfoot and about the time of the early 70´s before my time and so that I have no memories of.
Can´t wait, too!
Many greetings, folly3.

 ;) - Hello Everyone - Barney here - Another quick update about the new forthcoming book - Follyfoot Remembered.

The complete manuscript including cast interviews, letters and photographs are now with the publishers, and they are working on the layout.

I will keep you all updated with the process, and just as a little teaser, the book does contain a lot of never before seen pictures, including one, that I never, ever, thought I would see!!

Best regards - Barney

I hate to say this but there are many pictures of me from the early 70's that could frighten small children today.

Such as the hair only cut every 6 months - the big round shirt collars - platform shoes that could give you a nose bleed (yes, even for men) - dodgy aftershave advertised by retired boxers - chicken in a basket - dangerous flared trousers - hypnotic paisley patterned kipper ties -  Cherry B (for those under 30 it was a drink that usually achieved the objective) - pork scratchings that could stop your heart...................Ah, such blissful days.

But good news about the book - It will certainly be on my top shelf!

 :)  Fantastic news!    I  was beginning to fear that the whole project had been quietly dropped.
