Hey bit new here but here goes anyway :)

Um was just wondering if anyone has heard of a American Idiot A4 Artwork Book ?
I have the guitar tab book but thats not what I'm looking for.
I have only ever seen other people with it

It's like the one you get with the CD but a bit different and also A4

Any idea guys ?

I think that's the one with the green american flag cover. I've seen it on ebay a few times but it was always really pricey.
I'd love to get my hands on a copy or see some scans.

Thanks for the quick reply, yeah I saw a show the other day where even billie himself was flicking through it, and thought "I need one of them "
Any one got any links to it ?

I have this edition! This is the special 52 pages booklet that came out years ago. It contains journal entries, which inspired the dialogues in the musical. You can check the scans below :)

I would just love to have that book. I've always really liked it and now that the musical inspired its dialogues from it I want it even more. No idea where to get it though except for Ebay (which is the home of people with more money than I have :lol:)

the 52-page special edition CD is definitely not A4 size.

My bad, just got confused with the photo that was posted (:
But I know which edition you're talking about though. Too bad it's really hard to find..

If you mean the one that's about A5 size and is like a hardback book with a CD, that one's pretty easy to find at a cheap price, there's probably a few copies on ebay :)

But yeah there's also that one with the green cover which is like a journal. I think I might actually have it somewhere but I have no idea where =/ I'll post scans if I can find it and anyone wants to see it, though

Does anybody know if the handwrite in the book was all by Billie?
(that special edition, along with the actual booklet, I heard it was, but I'm not sure if there's a confirmation)
