VIDEO FEROX was a ZINE in the 90's. Now... it's a COFFEE TABLE BOOK!!!
Readers of my old zine STAY SICK! will undoubtedly remember Henrik Larsen's review of an issue of the legendary Swedish zine VIDEO FEROX. The zine is long gone but, lo and behold, the editor Johan Karlsson has reprinted every issue (i.e. 10) in book form! The book contains 608 pages and weighs a kilo (two pounds)!! Madre de dios!!!
Those original issues are RARE! (I never got hold of the early ones) and they go for inflated prices on the Swedish auction site Tradera. I've just ordered the book and paid around HALF of what one of the original issues went for on Tradera recently!!! According to their website the print run is limited to 160 copies and there's only about 30 left. Get it while you can. NB: All text is in Swedish.
For the Video Ferox site go here.
Prices: 297 SKR (Sweden) / 329 SKR (Denmark) (incl. postage). If you live in other parts of Scandinavia or elsewhere write and ask for price. They take PayPal and Bank-giro (the latter probably only within Sweden).
