OT - Taschen Sale - January 24-27
Join LibraryThing to post.
I would use it if I had the space... most books I would want to buy are XL size.
I assume Taschen still has prohibitive delivery charges to Oz? (Before I click on this link and fall in love with multiple books which (a) I can’t afford to ship and (b) won’t fit on my shelves...!)
Yes, Australians are insulted by the Taschen postage prices (A$100 for a A$10 book). Go to Book Depository instead.
I wonder if Thousand And One Nights will be on sale...maybe marked down to that fabled Amazon price of yesteryear :D ?
>6 MobyRichard: I bought in august it from Amazon.es for 102€. My only problem with this book is that in its case it doesn't fit my shelves and is now lying on top of one book case.
I'm hoping for Rome. Portrait of a City (It was on sale during the summer sale, but I was to slow to get a copy) and The World's Most Beautiful Libraries (I think there is a small chance for that one).
The sale started and I bought Rome. Portrait of a City (30€ instead of 50€) and National Geographic. In 125 Jahren um die World. Afrika (25€ instead of 50€).
What did you get?
On their site it reads: 25-75% discount on "Display & Slightly Damaged Books"
What should I expect the books´ condition to be in. Any experiences?
>8 c_schelle: Just checked it out. Nothing for me. The National Geographic book on offer about America by FS is now cheaper to acquire through Taschen.
Never had any damaged copies. This is a play around some German law where only damaged books can be discounted. All books I received were in mint condition, and I had a lot.
>9 Diggoar: I had the same experience as >11 Raenas:. I was in one of their London shops during last year's sale. There they had some damages copies, but everything I got from the online store was mint condition.
>10 NLNils: I got the natgeo America book last year. They had a flash sale on Sunday and I got it for 100€. They are two huge books and really well made. The German version also includes a separate translation volume of the text.
