Readers’ Response To Special Collector’s Edition

A Labour Of Love

As most of our readers now know, “The People’s Friend 150th Anniversary Special Collector’s Edition” is on sale now and we’re all incredibly proud of the finished product.

The hours spent in Archives sifting through the vast amount of material covering the last 150 years of the “Friend” made it difficult to select which items to feature in the special magazine, so we’re delighted that readers seem to love it as much as we do.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our readers are saying:

‘Fabulous Anniversary Issue’
