    Bargain!

    They're all truly great. Book One really lets you get inside Amano's head. For that reason it's the best in my eyes.

    The 'scapes look a little outdated these days, but considering some were photographed over 20 years ago...

    I can safely say without reading these books I wouldn't be writing this now, on UKAPS. They opened up a whole new world to me.

    Enjoy, and don't delay on Book One!

    Book 1 is proving hard to find at the moment. Books 2 and 3 are ace :)

    Phone them and tell them to hold it for you! You'll be hard pushed to find it cheaper than that, if at all! :)

    A copy of Book 1 sold on ebay for £15 last Sunday, and one sold a couple of weeks earlier for over £50 ! I was all poised to put a late bid on the £15 one, when the phone rang and I got distracted :twisted:

    I've got book 3 which is great, and will keep an eye out for the rest.

    I was also watching this, I had the window open ready to bid and everything but I got distracted, forgot about it and remembered about a second after it sold! I was so frustrated.

    Just rang my local store to see if they were able to order me a copy in (save the £5 postage ;)). Sadly, they weren't too helpful. Essentially they re-order whatever is normally on the shelf and has sold, and "can't" order anything else.

    10% off on your first order at the min at P@H. I've ordered one for me and it's already been sent out!
    See when I get it.

    I've ordered on too from p@h, as said above, 10% off too !

    Says 4 days for delivery, so we'll see if when it arrives - I thought it was out of stock with all suppliers.
