My Swatch Book

Dear Swatch friends and collectors!

After years of research and a lot of hard work in 2007 finally my Swatch book was finished! Please find an impression below. It really worked out to be what I wanted to create. A nice big quality book with lots of great pictures. Heaps of information. It really is a great book!

Limited Special Edition

As a true collector I also offered the book in a strictly limited special edition of only ten pieces. It was not cheap but it's ultra special! Look at the pictures below.

Here we go, two of the metallic cases:

An open case where you can see it is lined with a very soft velvet cloth:

Here you see the book and the special Swatch together:

Your special edition contains a replica of a Dutch Kiki Picasso (in the red, white and blue colours of the Dutch flag). I found Kiki Picasso himself willing to sign the straps of the Swatches! These signatures are authentic and ultra rare! They come in different colours.

Each of the special editions comes with an inlay inside the book. This inlay also holds the number. The book is numbered as well and signed as wished by the buyer.

Finally the book has a small certificate about the signature on the straps. It is embossed with my Ex Libris tag (hard to see here) and a greeting from Kiki Picasso:

The price for this limited edition was 449.95 Euro. None left!


The books are fully available and ready for shipping! Would you like to have one? That's great! I am sure you will love the book.

How to order from me

My mail box is open for orders. All you need to do is send me an email and let me know what you want. I will let you know the total amount including shipping and payment should be sent in advance. Payment is accepted through toll free bank transfer, toll free money order, cash or Paypal (add 5%). The book is not cheap. For such a quality work printed in low quantities (I do not expect to sell over one hundred) that is impossible. The price is 59.95 Euro. Because of printing costs I can not do any discounts on that. But rest assured it is well worth the money. I did not make this to earn a lot of money. If you order more than one copy shipping costs will be discounted of course.
