Good news for Leica collectors this week. The Leica Pocket Book, perhaps the most popular reference volume for Leica cameras, lenses and accessories through the ages, is under new management. Red Dot Photo Books, a new division of the London dealer, Red Dot Cameras is now at the helm. The latest edition, the 8th, was originally published in 2012. The new owners have now issued a 2018 reprint of the existing edition, which takes the Leica story up to the M9.
Ivor Cooper of Red Dot Photo Books says that he hopes the company will develop new titles with particular interest to Leica enthusiasts. He also intends to start deveopment on the 9th edition of the Pocket Book to reflect the advances in digital cameras and the newer lenses which have arrived since 2012.
In the meantime, the newly printed 2018 edition of the Leica Pocket Book is available at a cost of £26.96, plus £2.75 postage in the UK. Check the website for further details
