Booker Prize - The First Chapter Series

The Booker Prize is one of my particular interests as a collector, and I have managed to build up a complete collection of the winning / shortlisted novels. An interesting addition to a collection is the series of books being published by The Oak Tree Press which includes the first chapter of one of the Booker Prize winning novels in a limited edition signed by the author and featuring specially commissioned original artwork. For some of the books, the artwork is also available separately. The First Chapter Series was launched in 2006 and so far has featured five books, with a sixth to follow in the next few months. The profits of the series are used to support of children living with HIV/AIDS. The books and the artwork are produced to a very high standard and the whole initiative is strongly recommended.
