4The idea
The main idea behind this fan-based project was to compile an exhaustive discography of 7" releases by Paul McCartney. With the help of many collectors and Paul McCartney enthusiasts from around the world, I have managed to create a unique catalogue of all of McCartney's single releases to date.

After several years of research, I am very proud to announce the impending publication of volume 3 of the catalogue.

In order to achieve the ambitious goal to work on further releases, we still need your help! There are still some gaps that need filling and I am quite sure that there must be many more pressings and issue variations waiting to be discovered. If you are also a collector and you would like to participate, please contact me. Any help would be very much appreciated!

This is a non-profit project, but it should cover its costs. Unfortunately, printing costs are very high, particularly for relatively small print runs. But I do not wish to cut corners regarding the quality of the paper and print. Lower production costs due to the possibly of a larger print run in the future will of course be passed on to the collectors.
5Printing & Paper Quality
I consider it very important for the print quality to be high, because the main section of the book comprises photographs of the sleeves and labels. For this reason, I have selected the digital offset method of printing, which is able to reproduce images very sharply and the colours retain a very high intensity.

The first book (volume 1) was printed on 130 g/m² paper, which is a very good, heavyweight quality. In comparison, normal xerox-copy paper has a weight of only 80g/m². We had been able to even improve the weight of the paper for volume 2 and 3; those books were printed on 170 g/m²!
6What is planned for the future?
It is my hope, that with the help of the many contributing collectors, we will be able to publish subsequent volumes of the discography in a adequate time period.

Work on the next chapters is already in progress, but will need sufficent time to do it right!

Another big issue is the price of each volume. I hope that we will be able to print more copies in the future, which will bring the sale price down from its present level.
7Postage
Unfortunately, worldwide postage rates are relatively high. The best deal for our purposes is the air mail service offered by the German post office. You will only pay the actual postage charged by the post office - or less (please see www.deutschepost.de).
The cost of suitably sturdy packaging is already included. Please note that we only use registered mail to ship to certain countries at our own expenseve.
Please note that it is our aim to minimise the cost of postage as far as possible. Be sure to have a look at the special offers for Fan Clubs & Dealers. You may be able to save on postage!

8Special Offers for Fan Clubs & Dealers
- Please contact us if you are a member of a fan club and wish to place a group order. We will make you a special offer depending on how many copies you require. If we are able to send the books to a single address, you can save a lot on postage!
- Even if you are not in a fan club, you should still contact us if we can ship several books to the same address, to save on postage!
If you are a reseller and are interested in stocking the books, please contact us for special rates!
9Payment
- German customers please pay by regular bank transfer. This does not incur any additional costs for either side.
- The preferred method of payment for European customers is bank transfer using the IBAN & BIC number. Paypal* payments are of course also accepted; please have in mind that we have to pay a additional fee to PayPal for this service!
- For customers in the rest of the world (including the USA) the preferred method is by Paypal, to avoid the high cost of international bank transfers.

If you would like to pay any other way, please contact us!
