stockists in australia and europe…
Posted in books, paris: made by hand May 28th, 2009 by piablog

Lilibeth (haven’t we missed her?! Harriet too!) insisted on stopping by this morning -or evening, if you are down under – to let us all know that Paris: Made By Hand will be in the following fabulous bookstores by June 1st (that’s this Monday!)…


Pulp Creative Paper, MANLY
Kinokuniya in the Galeries Victoria, SYDNEY
Oscar & Friends Booksellers, DOUBLE BAY
Sun Bookshop, YARRAVILLE
Better Read Pty Ltd, NEWTOWN
Reader’s Feast RFM Melbourne, MELBOURNE
Abbeys Bookshop Pty Ltd, SYDNEY
Gleebooks Pty Ltd, GLEBE
Collins 941 Floreat, FLOREAT
Dymocks Sydney, SYDNEY
Dymocks Broadway, BROADWAY
Dymocks Nowra, NOWRA


**updated 29/5, includes the following:

Readings Carlton VIC
Ang & Rob Norwood SA
Dymocks Belconnen ACT
Dust Jacket Inverell NSW
The Hive Braddon ACT
Elliot Collection Essendon VIC
Turner & Lane Malvern VIC


For my Australian readers, if you don’t see the name of your favourite local bookstore above, I would absolutely love you (yes, LOVE you) if you could ask them to stock the book. I really really want the book to be in your local reading retreat, and the only way I know how to do that is to ask for your help. My local bookstores in Sydney would be Bookoccino in Avalon, and Berkelouw Books in Mona Vale. If anyone from the Northern Beaches could call these stores to ask for them to stock the book, I would be so so thankful. And I think my grandmother might just bellyflip to see them in her local bookstore! I would love my grandmother to bellyflip. I don’t know exactly what it means as I just made it up. But in my head, it’s an air born sommersault of sorts.


American Book Center, AMSTERDAM
Sterling Books, BRUSSELS
Alexia Hollinger, rue Therese, PARIS
Galignani, PARIS
Shakespeare and Company, PARIS
Village Voice, PARIS

There will be more stockists throughout France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Greece, still to come. And there should be a number of bookstores in the UK but I haven’t had confirmation of these yet.

I will now go and pop these stockists onto the book’s webpage for your future reference…

    yes yes indeed jo!! if you have a local store i’d love your help to get it in, the best way is to either order a copy from them or ask if they can stock it. And if/when they do just let me know and I will let NZ readers know to go to that store!

    Oh yes, how Lilibeth and Harriet have been missed! Have they had any new adventures, other than announcing your wonderful book that is. And P.S. I ordered your book last week, and am hoping it arrives today before the weekend officially begins.

    The day your book arrived, I sat down with a cup of tea and let you carry me away to Paris. Such loveliness and inspiration!!! The photos, the writing, your exquisite attention to detail… what a beautiful book, Pia. Bravo.
