*A Note on Shipping Rates
    The above are approximations and all rates are subject to change. In some cases, oversized books may carry a higher standard shipping rate and where possible we have calculated for those changes. In some cases, the actual shipping charge will be less than the estimated rate, in which case we will adjust the cost accordingly. The rates take into account that most of our books are art books, which are often heavy and require extra packing.

Express Service Upgrade
    Express service upgrade for both USA and International: $22.00 in addition to standard shipping charge. This $22.00 fee will cover ONE entire order of books available at the time of order, regardless of how many copies.

    Depending on total weight, if the shipping cost is less than quoted, we will adjust the charge accordingly. We require street address and daytime telephone number for Express Service. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or Military addresses for Express Service.

    Multiple volumes & Oversize/weight books: Many art books on our site have either multiple volumes or excessive weight. These titles carry a special
    shipping charge, which is declared along with its descriptions. If you buy more than one set/copy of these titles, the shipping cost of the second and subsequent sets/copies is reduced in half.

Estimated Delivery Time (depending upon availability of books ordered)
    Standard Service in Continental U.S.: 3-7 business days

    Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Military addresses & PO Boxes: 1-3 weeks

    International World Mail Service: 21-45 days. With World Mail Service, your order leaves by air from the USA, then enters your country's postal service via a distribution center in Europe. This speeds up delivery to addresses around the world.

    Express Service (USA): This is a Next Business Day Service. Your order will arrive the next business day. If you choose this option, we must receive your order before 3 p.m. Central Time. After 3 p.m. Central Time, we will ship your order the following day, which will arrive the next business day. We do not offer 2nd Day or 3rd Day Service because our Next Business Day rate is generally comparable to 2nd Day and 3rd Day.

    Express Service (International): Your order will arrive in within 3-5 business days via courier. We use either FedEx or DHL.Your order will be shipped within 24-48 hours after we receive it. If there is a delay due to availability, we will inform you immediately.

    Remember, depending on total weight, we will adjust the charge if actual cost is lower.

    Books not available at the time of order will be backordered and shipped when available from the publisher. We will inform you of the status. Shipping cost for EACH backordered book is $3.00 (USA) and $6.00 (International). You can cancel your backorder at any time by notifying us via email, fax, or phone.
