Law books ain't cheap

Certain old law books are very, very expensive (like this one).

Certain new law books are also very, very expensive. This book has slipped from its original publication date by about 3 years so far, so there's no guarantee that it will actually be coming out in November this year, as currently promised. But just look at that price.

£785.

Yes: that's not a typo. It actually costs £785 for a single volume of a single book.

It has 568 pages. 

That's £1.38 per page.

Law book prices are just insane sometimes.

That price better not be correct, I've been asked to buy 4 copies of that!!

Hopefully it's far less: S&M say it's £110 for Volume 1 (so it's now being split into 2 volumes...no word on the price of volume 2), and it's now coming out on 31 December, so it's slipped another month.
I think this book/books should be referred to as The Mythical Arrowsmith for evermore!

Sounds quite reasonable. :p

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour! Dollshouse insta-library (including 50 Shades of Grey, and the Hunger Games trilogies) Miniature haunted library Miniature Victorian library Still one of my favourites: themed mini
