Books: Our books are stored and posted from the UK.

Fees and duties on non-UK deliveries: If you are ordering outside the UK, please be aware you may have to pay tax, duties or other fees on delivery. We use a professional fulfilment company to help ensure smooth postage and prepare any necessary paperwork, but since Brexit on 1 Jan 2021, some EU and even rest of world customers have reported having to pay a (seemingly random) fee on delivery. This has never happened before and should not be happening, but for the time being there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Sorry for any confusion or complications during this period of unprecedented change – we hope Britain and the countries it exports to will soon smooth out any issues.
