    Gift New G-Shock Book!

    Many forum members know about the G-Shock Bibles, those Japanese colorful catalogues that are essential to follow the evolution and classification of all G-Shock models.

    Since I bought my G-Shock Bibles from Amazon.com.jp (the Japanese version of Amazon.com), I have been receiving e-mails in Japanese about books that might interest me. This time they sent me one about a new G-Shock book that is going to be released in Japan on next March 31.

    There are no illustrations or detailed information about it, but it's going to have 100 pages. Here is all I could get from an online free translator, with all the limitations that you know this kind of translations have:

    ムック: 100 pages
    Publisher: ベストセラーズ (2008/3/31)

    ISBN-10: 4584221626
    ISBN-13: 978-4584221624
    Release Date: 2008/3/31

    Product Description:

    《主語なし》I look back it with a/the prospectus interview! 《主語なし》Charm of G-SHOCK that is extolled in the G-SHOCK complete listing world where I wore with the G-SHOCK concept shop (EDGE) the information successive advertising strategy movie & drama that gave an/the impact to industry design.

    I think it looks interesting.

    Sjors just told me that in another translation he got the title as G-Shock Reader.

    This is the original link to the book:

    Let's see what additional information we can find!

    Wink Re: New G-Shock Book!

    In the book:

    Content introduction
    It turns around by the interview. G-Shock concept shop 【EDGE】
    information successive and advertisement strategies that struck close
    to home to industrial design
    Charm of G-Shock spoken very highly of in the G-Shock complete list
    world worn with movie & drama
    It seems that it is a same kind of book as the G-Shock Official Book (2006) and The Complete G-Shock Bible (2007) with an updated overview of all released (JP) models. However, a very interesting book.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Content quote from Sjors:

    This is just a wild guess, but could it be that this book will have a section on G-Shocks on movies and TV?

    Re: New G-Shock Book!

    You can find the Japanese G-Shock Bibles on eBay, but they're a bit overpriced usually.

    Here's the first one that came up in a search:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/2007-G-Shock-25t...QQcmdZViewItem

    There's probably not enough demand for English language versions unfortunately.

    I anyone would bother to translate I don't think that it would be much of an issue to get someone to publish it... is there a market for it here? That's a real question...

    But a nice find non the less...

    Just ho illegal would it be for someone to scan the whole thing and post on line?
