Casemate Academic, formerly called the David Brown Book Company, is the American affiliate of Oxbow Books. They are having two sales promotions on textile and costume-related texts until December 31, 2017.
One promotion offers a Year-End Sale discount of up to 85% on certain books, including, but not limited to, textile-related books. The discounted books may be seen here; no code is necessary to receive the discount. Among the textile-related books affected are the following items that I personally have my eye on:
- Shaw, Maria C. & Chapin, Anne P., eds. Woven Threads: Patterned Textiles of the Aegean Bronze Age. (Ancient Textiles Series vol. 22, Oxbow Books 2016). Original price: $55.00. Sale Price: $20.98.
- Harlow, Mary, Michel, Cécile & Nosch, Marie-Louise (eds.) Prehistoric, Ancient Near Eastern & Aegean Textiles and Dress: An Interdisciplinary Anthology. (Ancient Textiles Series vol. 18, Oxbow Books 2015). Original price: $55.00. Sale Price: $16.98.
- Harlow, Mary & Nosch, Marie-Louise (eds.) Greek and Roman Textiles and Dress: An Interdisciplinary Approach. (Ancient Textiles Series vol. 19, Oxbow Books 2015). Original Price: $75.00. Sale Price: $19.98.
In addition, a 20% discount will be applied to books in Oxbow's Ancient Textiles Series until December 31. This discount does NOT apply to books already receiving a discount in the Year End Sale category (such as the books listed above) but does apply to all the other Ancient Textiles volumes. The books subject to the 20% discount are listed here. (Note: The web page with the list says that the discount applies through September 30, 2017, but I just received a second e-mail today saying the discount will apply through the end of this year.) Again, no code is necessary; the discount will be automatically applied at checkout.
Good shopping, and happy Holidays!
