The Avengers: A Celebration: 50 Years of a Television Classic by Marcus Hearn
It's a bona fide 60s cult classic and a new hardback book on the shelves next week from Titan Books relives The Avengers, going by the name of The Avengers: A Celebration: 50 Years of a Television Classic by Marcus Hearn.
According to the pre-release write-up, this large-format book has been compiled with 'unprecedented access to the show’s official archive' and comes with a foreword by the show's ever-present star, Patrick Macnee, throwing in newly discovered photographs and exclusive words and anecdotes from the cast and crew.
The book covers all eras of the show (not just the Macnee / Rigg years) over its 160 pages and is released on Friday 29th October 2010. If you want a copy, Amazon is doing the pre-orders for a discounted £16.24.
