Stuff not in the catalogue: 

If you are seeking any books that do not appear in this catalogue, please feel free to send in your "want" list and Justin will see what he can do. Also, if you decide that you want something from a previous catalogue, do not hesitate to request what you want. Please state whether you want hardcover, trade paperback or paperback for these titles.

Payment methods:

Payment may be made by the following methods:

Please note that no deposit is necessary for any books ordered (except small press titles - $5.00 per book, please) but if you do order anything, you are obliged to pay for it when it arrives.

All prices may fluctuate as the U.S. dollar and the U.K. pound fluctuate, or the publisher changes the price, so please be prepared for the occasional price rise or fall.

Opening hours:

As of Saturday 26th of October 2002 the Slow Glass Book Shop will be closed for business.  You may continue to order books via mail-order after this date, and the website will continue to publish our catalogue and keep you up-to-date on developments.
