The Indiana Jones Lost Treasures: Vintage Press
 
Does anyone have a copy of this book?

Is it worth buying?

Never heard of him (or the book). But he seems to be an author of SW, IJ, Barbie Playmobil books and more. And they all seem pretty expensive.

OK, I believe it's self published.

Looks like the author is from France.

There will be a review of this book in Indymag next month however it's worth warning fans that this is an extremely poor and overpriced product that is a collection of scans with no real context or design and seems to be farmed from the Internet.

This book shows absolutely no insight into Indiana Jones and most of the writing is in pigeon English via google translate.

This book has been done through Amazons self-publishing portal and not a recognized publisher where a certain amount of due care and attention would have taken place.

This is a shame as I feel there is a real opportunity for their to be a quality book on this and Indymag would certainly be interested in supporting the production.

If you are interested Les this would be a good time to have that conversation.
