Book Project: The Occupation of Kufra / L'Occupazione di Cuf

Message par Kuno » 16 Mai 2010, 15:31

Dear Colleague;

On 19 January 1931, the last stronghold of the Libyan freedom fighters was conquered by the Italians. In the same year, the Governo della Tripolitania e Cirenaica has published an A4 size 175 pages thick book “L’ Occupazione di Cufra”, which contains as well maps and photographs of the operation. In the same year, the author Dante Maria Tuninetti published his A5 size 180 pages book “Il Mistero di Cufra” containing again lots of photographs which were not yet shown in the first book. Both these books were only published in Italian language and are rare finds in the bookshops today.

Now, I could use the lucky occasion to obtain some 60 original photographs (with captions on their back) about the military operation against Kufra. A few of these photos are already shown in the book of Tuninetti but the rest is not shown in neither of the two above mentioned publications.

Whilst I have not the intention to publish a big book about the conquest of Kufra in the style our book “Incident at Jebel Sherif” was done, I thought it might be worth to prepare a pure photo-book containing scans of the 60 contemporary photographs. I think for something like this:

• Format: A4, Landscape
• Pages: 32
• Photos / Page: 2 (plus original caption and translation into English language)
• Maps: 1 (showing the battle)
• Text: Only a very short introduction

I do not presume that there is even a small “niche” for such book and therefore only a very limited print run would be realistic. Such naturally means that the cost / copy would be fairly high – I actually did not calculate it yet…

I address to you because I thought it advisable to investigate, if there would be a certain interest amongst enthusiasts. I would be glad, if you could drop me a note telling your opinion about such project.

Kind regards and many thanks in advance.

So. After some cnsidering I came to a new conclusion. The size of the book shall be 17 x 22 centimetres and it shall contain 80 pages. The cover could look like this then:

The feedback I got clearly showed that this is something for a very small niche...

Anyhow. I think that I will do it. Now it shall be 17 x 22 cm and shall contain 80 pages.

Hello Kuno,
I think this is a very interesting project as there are not a lot of books on the subjects. It could be usefuls both for the historians and for the modellers as it could give them some ideas for their dioramas.
Best regards,
Aymeric

Il me semble que notre ami Giuseppe avait un splendide album sur cette période non ?

There are contemporary Italian publications about the occupation of Kufra. However; I do not intend to write a big history-book. The "Kufra Project" was more thaught as a photographic documentation about that operation.
