Avant Magazine Volume 2 Anthology Of American Militaria

£22.00 GBP

  • In this second issue, An Anthology of American Militaria, Avant dig into military clothing with particular focus on the U.S armed forces during the Great Wars of the 20th century. 

    They talk with Paul Milbury, Bob Chatt, and Jeff Spielberg, three vintage dealers and collectors passionate about history and militaria. They also talk with eight experts about the impact of social media on the vintage market as well as discussing the deontological limits associated with collecting Militaria. 

    Avant explores the West Coast Militaria collectors show in Pomona, an event you shouldn't miss if you’re a Militaria fan. And finally Avant teaches us all how to decipher the labels attached to military garments.
