I have just had the following email back from David.....seems fair enough that they want to track every item ...
''Thanks for your email. I hope that you have been well.
The issue is that the only way to send this in a trackable manner is to ship it at this rate.
We had attempted to send prints, etc. overseas in the past (in a less expensive and non-trackable manner) but had issues with customers that claimed that they never received their goods. While this technically should not have been our issue, we always ended up sending a second item to maintain the best customer service possible. Unfortunately we do not have the time, money, or (extra) catalogues to take on this risk.
We've even found ourselves shipping out multiple 2009 Gallery Catalogues because collectors have not always received them. Since we have a lot of extras on hand and they are much smaller and cost less to ship, it hasn't been as big of a deal. But again, a safe delivery has not always been guaranteed via a less expensive shipping method.
I appreciate all of your support in the past with our limited editions, and I hope that you can understand our position on the shipping. Having the ability to track these is very important.
Please note that we did try to keep the cost of the catalogue/print package to be somewhat reasonable. I think you'll be very pleased with the way that it all came out.
As always, do not hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions.
$20 postage for US shipping is steep and re-god-damn-diculous. Its a book. Dont get me wrong I bought one.

I can attest to the fact that $40 is (although maybe a tad high) what it costs to send an average book from the US to the UK. Now $20 inside the US is kind of steep, I still think this is a pretty good deal even with the postage factored in.
Can't moan too much at the postage. £77 gets you a cracking book AND a nice little print (same size as Weaving - which was an open edition @ £20) and delivered in time for Christmas (well it bloody better be at £25 a pop.). All in all a good deal.
