As you may have heard, this year marks Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th year on the throne, and like in 2012 and previous Jubilees, Britain is throwing a big party for her. Most of the big celebrations will take place in June but there’s a year-long series of events and commemorations.
Anglotopia has decided to release a special publication in celebration of this milestone. Introducing Crown & Glory: A Special Platinum Jubilee Commemorative. It’s a mix between a magazine and a book and will feature over two dozen articles about the Queen’s life, reign, and Britain.
The publication will clock in at 128 full-color pages and measures 8.5×11 inches (magazine size) – much like our recent London Annual. It will be your complete guide to the Platinum Jubilee, and everything that will be happening this year. We’re pulling out all the stops and licensing some beautiful and important historical imagery. This is going to be beautiful.
Here’s a mock-up to give you an idea of what you can expect.
Pre-orders start today. It will ship by the end of April, probably sooner as it’s mostly done but we want to give plenty of buffer time in case there are any hiccups. We will only be producing a limited number of these, no more than 250 copies, so it’s very important to order in advance. At this stage, you won’t be able to buy it anywhere else and can only get it directly from us.
The cost is $24.99, shipping to the USA is FREE. Canada is $15. Everywhere else is $20.
