Updated: Photography Book Sale

My bookshelves are overflowing so I’m having a sale — some books are priced quite attractively, but here’s the catch — I don’t want to sell individual books — packing and shipping 20 separate orders is a hassle — so: Orders shipped by mail must contain 3 or more books.

If you happen to be in the San Francisco Bay Area, I will entertain the idea of hauling the books down to the Albatross Pub in Berkeley, where you can peruse them and pay in beer. Sound dangerous?

Shipping will be at actual cost. You can pay via Paypal, money order, or beer. You can post a comment, or send me an email. I reserve the right to sell to whomever offers a friendly, no nonsense transaction. Whatever doesn’t sell by 4/12 will be traded in at my local bookshop on 4/13. Here’s the list:
