Please do buy books from this website, and we will pack them and post to you using the Royal Mail (surface for USA orders), or couriers. Our post charges will be added automatically to your order and you will be able to see what they are as you order.

If you wish to have your books postage free, then use The Book Depository, as postage is included to most destinations: However, books will take longer to arrive as we have most of the list ready to pack up here, and they order in from the large warehouse.

Please use the Books/Catalogue tab above for direct orders from us. Our payments are handled by Pay Pal or Nochex for Visa and Master Card, all other cards except for Amex. 


 PPC – new subscriptions will start with PPC 118 going out November 2020. To subscribe, use the link. It works for renewals too. Tom Jaine can be contacted about editorial content for PPC on
