All our POD books are printed individually to
order, and we pride ourselves on their production quality. They are
manufactured by the same printing company using exactly the same
paper as we use for our conventionally printed titles.
Where we have the original cover artwork, we
produce POD books with their original cover design. Those books for
which original cover artwork is not available are produced with an
attractive standard design.
Print-on-demand technology enables us to keep
more of our books in print and many of our POD titles remain the
authoritative reference in their field. Because each book is
printed individually we are unable to accept cancellations or
returns of POD books unless they are faulty.

10 days of receipt of order. However, we are currently encountering
severe delays with the supply of POD books and as such are unable
to confirm the timescale for supply. Our current best estimate is
8-12 weeks. Please place your order in the usual way and we will
record all POD orders received and supply them as soon as possible.

estimated delivery time here as we resolve these supply issues. We
are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause our
