As you know, we have a huge photo archive, and this will form the basis of our work. But I need your help assembling pictures. You probably have figures that we would like to include. Yes, I may have a picture of a figure just like one of yours in my archive---but I cannot publish it if quality is poor or I lack the photographer's permission. Please step forward and help. If we all do this, we will have a book that will delight collectors for decades to come---and we will pass our passion and knowledge on to future generations.
If you are ready to reach for your camera, may I suggest this approach: take a few quick shots of your collection as it stands, email them to me, and I will get back to you right away telling you which figures I need. I know lots of you have fabulous figures. Please, please share. Of course, we will acknowledge your ownership in the book, or we will ensure your anonymity if that is your preference. Now's the time to let your figures strut their stuff. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
