Do you love Star Wars and nostalgia? Well I would like to suggest that you check out the John Booth book, Collect All 21! Memoirs of a Star Wars Geek. John has put together a loving tribute to those figures that we were all obsessed with in the late 70s and 80s. In John’s own words:
It’s a walk through my 1970s- and 1980s-era childhood through the lens of Star Wars, which I came out when I was six years old; moving on to the years between the original saga’s end and its resurgence in the mid 1990s; and finally to the prequel era, when I’ve become a parent and shared the movies with my daughter. Though the memories are mine, I’ve found they strike similar chords (often eerily similar) and reawaken many recollections in other fans of both the Star Wars movies and sometimes just fellow children of the 1980s in general.
If you want a fun romp through your own past, it will definitely re-ignite memories of your own collecting.
