Shipping charges are calculated based on the weight and destination of your purchase.

  • £3 to anywhere in the UK (£3 is charged on all UK orders up to 2kg)
  • £6–8 to countries in the EU
  • £8–12 to World Zone 1 (North America (excl. US), South America, Africa, the Middle East, and most of Asia)
  • £9–13 to World Zone 2 (includes Australia, New Zealand and Singapore)
  • £10–15 to World Zone 3 (US only)

The shipping costs increase incrementally depending on the weight of your book or on how many books you are ordering, The full charges will be displayed when you enter your delivery address details on the cart/order page before purchase.

Estimated delivery times for your purchases are as follows:

  • UK: allow 3 to 5 days for delivery
