Gift company I Just Love It has launched a range of personalised hardback and softback Thunderbirds-inspired books utilising strips from several sources – and a Gerry Anderson Collector’s Edition that offers other strips, too.
Seven new personalised books are now available, re-packaging collections previously published by Egmont UK, priced at £14.99 each.
The books offer different collections of the original 1960s and 1970s comic book strips, along with classic artwork from Frank Bellamy, Eric Eden, Graham Bleathman, John Cooper and Frank Hampson.
A Personalised Thunderbirds Collector’s Edition Book is also on sale for £49.99, which features an introduction to the brand with key moments and dates; and a Personalised Gerry Anderson Collector’s Edition Book, featuring comic strips from Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Lady Penelope and more.
The hardback editions can be personalised with a name that can be embossed on the front cover, while the softback versions feature a name on the front cover and in the header of every internal page.
“Thunderbirds was a must-watch programme in every household, and the comics were incredibly sought after when first published for many 60s and 70s children,” notes Kevin Sears, ecommerce director at Gifts Hub.
