(This has yet to be confirmed.) It is hoped that all major contributors who have written pieces for the book will be wiling to sign five Special Copies of the book. Two of these rare copies will be presented to John Dixon by Nat Karmichael sometime in 2011. Two of the other copies will be submitted to the National and Queensland Libraries, while the remaining copy will be presented to someone lucky who pre-orders the Autographed Edition. That is, all people pre-ordering the Autographed Edition will go into a draw to win a rare copy Autographed by not only the artists, but all contributors who have written tribute pieces for the book. (These people include: John Dixon's sister, his niece, his (former) Manager, his son and daughter, Jan Rhoades - wife of Australian comic historian John Ryan, John Dixon's wife, and his collaborator from the 1960s - Mike Tabrett.)
This is such a rare opportunity to own a rare historical work, that I suggest you click immediately to the on-line Store, because there is a limit of only 200 copies of the Autographed Edition of John Dixon, Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor being made available....they won't last long!!
