As promised here are a few other PAN books with a link to crosswords which I’ll call PART 5. There are at least four Jumbo books but I’ve only found the one shown and as for the ‘Easy Puzzles’ I’m not paying the silly price being asked which seems to start at £35 pounds and goes upwards. I think I have a few more random crossword related titles, possibly Piccolos, and I’ll add them to the page as I find them. PAN also published dozens of crossword books for the Daily/Sunday Telegraph starting in the late 80’s but I’m not going down that route!
It was while I was looking at this photo of Arthur Hailey and family in Australia after receiving his ‘Golden PAN Award’ for selling a million copies of ‘HOTEL’ I thought I’d look as see how many I have. I didn’t realise it was eight with the latter three having minor variants to the cover. These three are all dated 1983 so I sequenced them by price. I’ve often had problems working out dates so price might be the way to go.
Once again Jules Burt has produced an excellent video which looks at my collection of negatives for reference photos used by Sam Peffer for his covers. This is PART 1 of three parts and I’m really looking forward to seeing what Jules will be doing in the others. (If you don’t subscribe to his channel you will get a couple of ads first)
