The Easy On The Eye Books online shop has been “parked” for a few days while we updated links across this site. These are all now working and have been tested. If you do encounter the “parked” error message when you reach the shop please let us know as it means I’ve missed one! And sorry, but the double Green Shield stamps offer is now closed…
We were very chuffed to be given the ‘Book of The Month‘ choice in the respected German music monthly magazine Eclipsed’s February edition, for our German language edition of the Deep Purple in Rock biography. It’s nice for us, but also for the translator, proof reader and people at Hannibal books who commissioned this edition. You can read the full review (sent to us by Luts Reinert who helped in the early stages of the production), one of a growing number, on the German reviews page.
The German language edition of our popular Deep Purple book telling the story of the In Rock album and the events leading up to it is finally out. What I assumed would be a relatively simple job of replacing the english text taking me a couple of weeks turned out into a mammoth three month job and a steep learning curve! ItBut the end result does look very good and it seems to be getting well received in Germany. The book can be ordered direct from the publishers there, Hannibal Books, who have their own shop. It will not be available through us. A big thank you to our translator, the people at Hannibal, our proof reader and everyone at the printers. All are credited in the book. There is a preview of the book on our flipbook page.
We do apologise for the lack of updates lately; we’re only a small business and had some family health issues to deal with which have clobbered our publication plans this summer. However we’re now starting to pick up the pieces and pleased to announce that our German language Deep Purple edition is at the printers, and also preview our next title, The Yes Interviews, below. More to follow!
The next title on the press is the Yes Interviews book, a fabulous read compiled from the many interviews of radio DJ and writer Jon Kirkman done with the musicians over the past twenty years or more. Final layout is now being done and we can show two of the spreads here. As always the book will have illustrations throughout. More pages will follow and we hope to announce pre-sales in a couple of weeks. You can read more about the project under the forthcoming section of this site.
There are flipbook samples of the Deep Purple In Rock book on our library now. There are 20+ pages from the English edition, and 20+ different pages from the upcoming German edition, so you can get an idea of what the book looks like whatever the language!

The upcoming German edition of our popular Deep Purple title Wait For The Ricochet (see below) can be pre-ordered direct from the publisher’s on their site. Doing this helps everybody concerned from the writers to the distributors and helps stop Am*zon’s plan for world domination. The English edition can still be ordered direct from our shop.
