The Big Issue Best Of Volume I, II, and III was published in 1998.
Note: not all the articles from the original issues are found in these. The pages are grey tone copies in this first reprint of old issues. See the lower example page. This is one reason that this is a hard issue to find. The manner or reproduction was of such low quality, I believe few issues were sold. The second big issue is much more common.

The Big Issue Best of Volume IV, V, and IV was published in 1999. In this issue the pages are normal -no grey tone cheep copy. It appears similar to the high quality pages found in all the other issues.
