Unless I've missed something, it doesn't seem so this year  :(

Anything's possible, but I think this is unlikely for several reasons:

There's still stock of the previous two photobooks, law of diminishing returns would suggest a limited market for a third.
50th Anniversary book has a chapter on the 2010 season.
The merch budget has to cover an awful lot of items.
And finally, while I have access to a wealth of on the ground/behind the scenes photos courtesy of the groundcrew, there's actually very little of 558 in the air that hasn't already been used in the pocket diary, anniversary book and upcoming 2012 calendar - don't know whether people are submitting stuff to the trust and its not getting passed on, or whether people just aren't making their pics available (tho I suspect the latter, sadly).

I'll have a word, and if a book is a possibility will put up an appeal for photos.

The Club has published the last two photobooks. There's not one on our radar this year for the reasons outlined above by Mark.
