I was a little disappointed with this issue of Miller's Collectables 2010-2011 compared to previous issues by Miller's. I found that rather alot of the items shown in the book were indeed American and rarely seen here in the UK. There are plenty of books published in America, which already cover these items and I think that Miller's should try and stick to British and European items.

Perhaps it is the fact that a number of my particular areas of interest did not feature heavily this year, but it does not have the same un put downable qualities, for me at least.

I also felt that some of the content was more oriented to the other side of the Atlantic than to UK consumers.

I make these observations, not having perused the book from cover to cover, which I usually do. It just seems to have lost a bit of its relevance [to me] despite being very much a similar product, and very colourful, to other years.

As ever however, if sitting around with a few minutes to spare, there are always snippets of interest to be found. I like the suggestions of pricing valuation....... makes my small collection of 'things' seem far more intrinsically valuable than they are !

If you are looking for a valuation or just an explanation of something then this is the book for you. It is laid out in easy to identify chapter.

I have just a minor moan about it....it is so thorough that it would not be easy to transport around to your car boot sales. It is very, very heavy.

I didn't realise when I bought it , that it was a couple of yrs out of date. However the book itself is very informative.

Having many many years of buying Judith's heavy tomes on antiques this is a much better and more portable format and being focussed on collectables it is more in keeping with todays trend away from true antiques towards modern collectables
