We have just about recovered from launching Alyn Wallace’s Photographing The Night Sky. We’d like to thank all who bought direct from us, over 3000 people (it’s not on Amazon), it makes a huge difference to the author, and buying direct from fotovue.com enables us to invest in new titles and second editions.
Times are hard for all of us, and as we all know it looks to continue. As a publisher we are experiencing a big rise in costs, mainly due to an increase in paper prices, they’ve almost doubled. During the pandemic many paper mills closed, and there was a shortage of paper, now increased energy costs for paper production are sky high. Shipping is problematic as well, with increased costs, sometimes slow delivery, and of course a series of strikes. In addition, shipping to the EU after BREXIT now incurs VAT, admin and customs charges for the recipient, many publishers are now not shipping books to the EU, we are persevering.
But we all need to get out and about with our cameras, whether locally or further afield. It lifts the spirits and clears the mind.
DISCOUNT COUPONS IN THE RUN UP TO CHRISTMAS
In the run up to Christmas, if you want to complete your fotoVUE collection, buy a new title, or buy the books as gifts, we are offering a price reduction until 15th December.
25% off UK titles, Iceland and Dolomites using the coupon code LAND and 20% off Night Sky using the coupon code SKY (Discount Price: £51.96). If you order Night Sky you will have to order that separately from the other books. Please tell your friends. We need to save up for some great new titles in 2023, more on that later.
Because of potential postage strikes, it is best to get your order in early.
