    Default Wanted: Willie Sundqvist, Swedish Carving Techniques.

    Evening all,

    As the title really. I'm really getting into my carving and want to have a read of Wille Sundqvists book: Swedish Carving Techniques, but the library can't get hold of a copy & its out of print!

    It seems the only option i have is to buy one!!

    I was tracking one on ebay, but the seller changed from an auction to but it now without notice, grrrr i hate that Two auctions recently both went for £95, which is extortionate i know, but what can i do?

    So, if you want to sell a copy (must be in English ), i have £100, or if any kind and trusting sole wants to lend me a copy, please get in touch.

    Thanks

    James

    I'd lend you my copy but the postage might be prohibitive and it would probably be lost by Royal Mail/Magyar Posta because of the xmas chaos.

    If you havn't had any success by mid January PM me, maybe I'll be heading back to the UK for a few days.

    Cheers Mate, that's very kind of you

    I wouldn't want to risk it through international Christmas mail either

    I'll see what happens here, and if i have no luck, i'll drop you a PM

    Wow!

    Maybe it'll get you some exposure to find you one?

    It's a good book and well worth pursuing.

    Nice to hear the local Library came up trumps :-)

    I usually look for rare books on Abebooks http://www.abebooks.co.uk/ and double check prices on Amazon.

    In fact a copy of Kepharts Camping & Woodcraft courtesy of Abebooks has just arrived from the USA today so thats me happy :-).

    However that book must be exceedingly rare as neither of the above have anything under £145!

    Cheers
    Bryan

    Bit the bullet today and ordered direct from Taunton in the US - £23 incl. shipping to Blighty. Probably [only] a couple of quid more than getting it in the UK by the time postage is added by the Woodsmithexperience...and the books haven't arrived yet in the UK

    What an excellent book. It arrived yesterday.

    Truelly international...written by a Swede, ordered from the US, delivered from Germany (???), now in the UK

    Taunton were a bit slow in delivering but came well packed.
