New Kim Simmons book - bulk order

Postby Richard_H » Tue Aug 20, 2019 8:42 pm

I've had the pleasure of interviewing Ben Sheehan who co-author a new book from Kenner photographer Kim Simmon. Rather than all of us buying books from the States and paying a shed load of shipping we can club together. It is $50 in the States but I don't know UK price yet. Who is interested?

Very possibly interested, but I seem to be having difficulty finding out some basic info about the book. Any idea how many pages it has please? The link you provided doesn't say, and if it's on the Facebook page it seems to be well hidden!

Thanks.

I'd also like to know some more info on it but I would probably be interested in one Richard.

Good idea putting this thread up as I noticed that the Engineering an Empire book cost the guys $71 to ship it to me and I'm pretty sure they charged less than this when I ordered it so I really appreciate them doing this (they were also total gentlemen in the whole proceedings and I'm very happy to own this book :D ). Anything that can be done to bring the prices down on these books is a good thing as it can make them unattainable at times. Also I heard that there's not duty to pay on books as long as they're are listed as this when sent as an extra bill on top of the shipping cost would not be welcome if unnecessary.

I will get the write-up finished today and should have my copy in about 10 days' time. I've spoken to Kim to get an idea of total including shipping quotes.

Hope they proof read it before printing as there’s a typo on their preview page :lol:
