Several factors distinguish this book from any issued by the Lladro company, starting with the fact that Collecting Lladro is in print and widely and readily available. Other distinguishing features of Collecting Lladro are photos of rare prototypes not found in other published sources, historical and factual information found in no other source written or virtual, listings that include not only titles but brief descriptions to help collectors identify their figurines, and tips on how to buy on the secondary market that are not found in any other source, and price ranges on retired items (rather than "one price") determined from a variety of sources including Lladro auctions, Lladro dealers and brokers, and my own experience as a collector. Readers are encouraged to look at the Table of Contents and judge for themselves whether the book brings added value to the collector knowledge base about Lladro.
