Today, I received an e-mail notice from Casemate Academic (Oxbow Books's American affiliate, which used to be called David Brown Book Company), advising that a number of Casemate's books on textiles and weaving are being discounted 20% from now until October 31, via this code: 781-16.I have not checked the Oxbow Books site, but I suspect similar discounts would apply.
Affected titles (with their USD prices) include:
Stella Spantidaki. Textile Production in Classical Athens. Was $55.00, now (i.e., with the discount) $44.00.
Henrietta Harich-Schwarzbauer. Weben und Gewebe in der Antike/Texts and Textiles in the Ancient World. Was $49.99, now $39.99.
Marie-Louise Nosch & C. Gillis. Ancient Textiles. Was $48.00, now $38.40.
Karina Gromer & Frances Pritchard. Aspects of the Design, Production and Use of Textiles and Clothing from the Bronze Age to the Early Modern Era (NESAT XII). Was $78.00, now $62.40.
Marie-Louise Nosch & Zhao Feng. Global Textile Encounters. Was $12.00, now $9.60.
Mary Harlow, Cécile Michel & Marie-Louise Nosch (eds.). Prehistoric, Ancient Near Eastern and Aegean Textiles and Dress. Was $55.00, now $44.00.
If you've wanted any of these books and the price drop brings them within your budget, here's your chance for a Halloween treat.
