I got the new Marinella book in the mail today. It is published by Electa, which does a lot of the best Italian fashion books (including co-publishing the great Apparel Arts reprint). It is a beautiful book, handsomely illustrated. I look forward to reading through the text.

Manton:

Can you give us a bit more detail on the book: ISBN number, where did you order your book from etc.

Thanks,

MB

It's an Italian book, so there is no ISBN. There are two editions: one with Italian text, and one with English. I assume that the English version is just a translation and that the books are otherwise identical.

It was actually a thread on this site that alerted me to it. I tried to find the thread to link, but I don't think the search function here is working all that well. It finds really old posts, but tends to skip over more recent stuff. Anyway, I got it off an Italian art book seller's website.

You can buy it at www.libroco.it or www.ibs.it, among others. I've been thinking of ordering it but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

With the help of bryce330 and Manton, I was able to track down the book online: http://www.libroco.it/cgi-bin....=146945 It is priced at 80 euro, at today's exchange rate, that amounts to $107 for a 160 pages book. Wow I thought only we at the States are paying high prices for books. Apparently that is not the case. Europeans are paying even higher prices for their books.

The same site sold it to me for 56 Euros. Lord knows why, they just did.

Hmm. I registered for an account successfully, but I'm not seeing the discount. Is there something special I need to do?

No, it just happened automatically when I ordered. Shipping was 15 euros.

Note to self: this indicates that Manton is not price-sensitive when buying books about clothing. Be sure to raise prices 30% when attempting to sell him something.

I confess that I would have paid full price for it. Electa clothing books are really good. And the English versions have tiny print runs. I have found through bitter experience that you can either buy when they come out, or spend years trying to find them.

speaking of marinella, I have two ties (one light blue with very small navy and yellow pattern), and a heavier silk burgandy tie (blue and yellow small pattern). They are wonderfully constructed, bought from Bergdorf Goodman NYC, but I've never worn them. Anyone interested in the pair for $100 plus shipping to you? paypal, money order, etc. is fine

I guess I've grown partial to 'mod' patterns and stripes from brioni and bizzochi.
