Alert: For our potential international clients, please be aware that our carrier of choice (the US Postal Service), has been experiencing severe International Service Disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In its April 23, 2020 update, the USPS stated: "The Postal Service will utilize sea transportation to address the issue of limited air transportation resulting from widespread flight cancellations and restrictions due to COVID-19. This option will remain in effect until sufficient air transportation capacity becomes available." As of July 2020, this diversion from air to sea transportation is still in effect, resulting in much longer delivery times to international buyers. We apologize for these delays, but they are out of our control, and we regret that we are unable to provide good and firm estimates for actual shipping times. [End of Alert] Works on Paper has been doing its part to aid and abet the construction of the Tower of Babel via ABE since 2003. We therefore deal in books, manuscripts, and ephemera in a variety of languages (though English-language offerings do predominate), from modest paperbacks to one-of-a-kind rarities. For us, Barthes phrase the pleasure of the text has many meanings, one of them being the old and meaningful sensation of the physical book held in human hands. Nevertheless, in our one concession to modernity and the internet age, and in order to keep our prices as competitive as possible, we do not have a brick-and-mortar location. In this way we strive to blend the best of the old with the new.
