The book tells Micke’s personal story of growing up as an ABBA fan in Germany. As he got older between 1984 and 1988 Micke travelled across Europe to television studios, theatres, hotels, wherever the four former ABBA members were appearing to promote their latest projects.
During this time he was a member of the team that put together the German fanzine ABBA Fan Blatt. Many of those meetings were documented in the pages of the fanzine, with exclusive interviews that are reproduced in the book.
The book features many unique personal photographs by Micke and his friends, plus some rarely seen photos by professional photographers. The book is obviously a labour of love dedicated to a very special time in Micke’s life.
ABBA by Micke was published in September 2011. See the book’s website for more information about the book and ordering links. Note: if you are ordering from Amazon.co.uk outside the UK use the second link, not the one for Instant Books fulfilled by Amazon.
