How to import a book from Taiwan

Recommended Posts

Tomsima

I need to import a paper copy of 《漢字書法之美》 by 蔣勳 from Taiwan to here in the UK. There is a mainland 簡體版 that I already have, but I specifically need the 繁體版. I've checked purpleculture and cypressbooks, and neither stock it. Amazon.cn appears to have already shut down its non-kindle operations in China and I cant seem to actually buy the version that is listed there (as 89RMB). Does anyone know any reliable Taiwan bookstores that will ship to the UK that might have this book in stock?

博客來.  They even have the book in stock, and according to their FAQ they deliver internationally (though I've never tried that, so can't speak for its reliability).

The book just arrived, in perfect condition, and in under a week. It was delivered by DHL this end. Great service, highly recommended.
