The postie arrived a couple of days ago with my copy of the fabulous Print & Pattern book. It almost made up for not having an internet connection for nearly 3 days. Compiled by Marie Perkins, aka Bowie Style, of one of my fave blogs Print & Pattern, it’s a visual feast featuring both well known and up and coming designers, including a number of Australians.
I bought mine from the Book Depository in the UK, who offer free international shipping, and it arrived in 3 days! It was less than $29… which is almost half what you’d pay for it here in Australia. Gotta love that.
If you’re after books, don’t forget to check out Booko – it searches both Australian and international sellers to give you the best price on a particular title including shipping to Australia.
I’ve been dipping in and out of Print & Pattern for the past few days, and I’ve recently finished The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver – which was a great read. Have you bought or read any good books lately?
