  • Antique Trader Price Guide celebrates its 25th
  • General guides deliver key identifying details
  • Guides more than pay for themselves

This fall, Krause Publications brings you an exciting collection of general guides and all-encompassing topical references you can turn to with confidence, for answers to your collecting questions.

October marks the release of the 25th Anniversary Edition of Antique Trader® Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide. This top-selling guide, edited by Antique Trader’s very own “Kyle on Antiques” Kyle Husfloen, contains listings and auction-quality photos for key categories including glass, pottery and porcelain, metals, and furniture, as well as a number of other whimsical and contemporary areas. With concise descriptions, key characteristics and pricing, there’s no question why it’s the one price guide more people turn to.

Also coming in October is Antique Trader® Collectible Cookbooks Price Guide. This new guide catalogs 75 years of culinary treasures and celebrates the authors behind it. This exciting new book features more than 600 cookbooks and recipe booklets from the turn of the century through the 1970s-complete with 1,200 color photos. The book is divided into General Cookbooks (like Pillsbury and Better Homes & Garden), Community Cookbooks (a selection of fundraisers) and Advertising Recipe Booklets; and organized by author, which allows readers to learn about the author and the history behind it. This exciting book is written by the husband/wife team of Peter Peckham and Eddie Edwards, experts on the subject and owners of www.OldCookbooks.com – a site that contains more than 15,000 cookbooks.

“We picked cookbooks that were  fun or funny, famous or extraordinary, or just plain appealing," said co-author Peter Peckham. "There are many undiscovered treasures – cookbooks that are forgotten, but valuable or desirable for their historical or regional significance."

Visit www.krausebooks.com to find out more about these, and other exciting references in the Krause Publications family.
