    That doesn't sound finished to me. The damned thing could get lost in the post on the way to the printers.

    Damn, that book looks fantastic! I'm not a huge Mario Bava fan and the price is a bit steep, so I probably will not order it. But maybe one of these days if I have money burning a hole in my pocket...

    It looks like it will be pretty cumbersome to hold and read! And almost too thick to be a coffee table book! But I want it!

    I'm not a religious person or else I'd curse!
    FUCK that price!:
    $290 for foreign buyers?You must be joking!!:fire:
    Who's going to buy a book for that money??

    Ordering before the 21st isn't an option for me either.

    It's expensive, but not unheard of for a book. You should check out the Taschen catalog sometime.

    Taschen books go for a third of the price, months after their first release, at least here.

    And Taschen publishes... furnitures in book form!

    It is expensive. Lot's of people will be put off I'm afraid. I know I am.

    A lot of their books are cheap, but Taschen has a lot of limited pressing books on the scale of the Bava book that go for $400 to $500 a piece. Go to their website and they have a couple on the home page that are $1000. By comparison Lucas' book seems downright reasonable. Too rich for my blood, though.
