  1. Looked it up on Amazon and they don't have any in stock unfortunately. Looking at the prices for resell, looks like it must be popular as the price in about $90(£56)which is more than 3 times the price on B&N. Would paid a lot for a good art book but not if it's going to a re-seller:( I would prefer to line the pocket of the author and contributors. Don't normally order from B&N but not likely to be in store so maybe this time.
    Besides that I hope you have a good turnout and sell many many books. Love looking through the various urban sketcher sites.

    1. Jacqui - Amazon should have it back in stock by now. The second reprint has delivered and they should be stocked up by now. They were certainly out of stock for a few weeks in March/April

      The book is going for a special discount price today in the Cass Islington store

    2. I've had an email today from Gabi - who wishes he was able to come today and meet everyone - saying the book is out of stock again in Amazon US, with a reprint expected in June. It's a sign of its success, I suppose.

  2. I will put in on reserve so Gabi gets some of the money at least.

    Woo! I'm very happy with my new book!
    Great to meet you today!

  4. Glad you came today, Nathan. Good to meet you.
    It was a great afternoon!
