This book is full of photos of beautiful collectibles on Lucy - magazines, posters, toys, all sorts of memorabilia. It is wonderful to the Lucy fan to use a something of a check list. The one flaw is the absolutely ridiculous prices Wyman says some of these things are worth. I recently bought the 40s picture frame photo he says is worth $75 for $4! Many times I have paid less than a third the price he says these things go for. Wonder if he jacked up the prices expecting they would eventually fetch these rates in years to come. Still, this is a gorgeous book and he certainly does have an outstanding collection on Lucy.
Talk about complete! "For the Love of Lucy" is the ultimate book for fans and collectors of "Lucy" memorabilia. Filled with beautiful color and black & white pictures, along with helpful text and value estimates, this compendium will keep any fan busy for hours. I'm not a collector, but I found it thrilling to sift through all the pages and see the many different things out there. This would be a great birthday or Christmas gift for any Lucy lover you know.
This book is AWESOME! I don't even really need to buy whats inside it because I can just open up this book and look at them all. Love this, and huge! so when its set down somewhere people HAVE to see it lol. Thanks so much!
I loved this book, it was a great find and I was surprised at the size of the book! LOL!! Big! I wish I had half the items it had inside it but it is so cool to see all the things in it! GREAT book. :D
I think that Ric B. Wyman has done a superb job on his book. I love all the pictures and models he showed. I think everyone should have this book. Get it NOW
Great book - a must for any Lucille Ball fan, and especially the collector. Beautiful photos that will bring back countless memories. Very well done!
