The world has never seen an in-flight magazine quite like it. Seat pockets were empty after every flight and AIR NIUGINI could not meet the written requests for back copies from those who had seen and heard about it.
So, they put together the handsome hard cover volume "Best of Paradise" comprising what they thought were the top stories from the first two years of publication. It sold like a bestseller and soon a second volume, "Paradise Plus", was published.
I have a copy of both and whenever I feel a bit "homesick" for New Guinea, I page through them and look at the pictures and read the stories. If you are lucky, you may be able to find a preloved copy on ebay.com.
