Outside the UK?
In the US, we are being sold by Silver Sprocket in San Francisco. They have just got new books in stock, including hard copies of The Best Journey in the World.
There will be a German edition from Panini most likely in the Spring, which will be BD-sized and available throughout the EU. News on that as it comes.
Conversations are ongoing with publishers in Canada and the US to licence the book; hopefully these areas will get better service soon.
Thank you for your enthusiasm!
