YEARBOOKS

Our 1983, 1984 and 1985 Yearbooks are written as if "today" is 1st January of the following year with no knowledge of future events, songs or releases. The intense detail, accuracy and quality of the colour print and paper thickness surpass a high end Tour Programme. This builds up into the ultimate reference guide on The Style Council (1983-1989).

 

Unofficial, self funded, self published, no crowd funding, no pre orders and no paid advertising. Just like it was in the 80’s. In stock for immediate dispatch.  The 1985 Yearbook is at the printers ands expected to be listed in February 2024.
