There is now a fairly decent selection of Hibs books available on the web.  The daddy of them all is of course The Making of Hibernian by Alan Lugton – three volumes of the history of Hibernian Football Club.  Sadly, volumes 2 and 3 are really hard to get hold of (Volume 1 can be purchased on the link below).  They turn up from time to time on Ebay but can’t be found on retailers such as Amazon or Blackwells.  I’ve no doubt that a single tome of all three books would sell a bucket load some Christmas.  I’m crossing my fingers for 2010.

Here are a few you might be interested in, please feel free to recommend more via the comments.
