THIS IS HOW WE PROCEED... WE SORT OF 'SPLIT' THE WORLD IN THREE PARTS

China, "the rest of the world" and the Netherlands

Image
China
Currently being my biggest market, China gets 600 books from the total run of 1200.
These books are accompanied by a White Pages booklet in Chinese, with translations of all texts in, yes, Chinese.
This is handled by a Chinese company which also takes care of shipping to 'the rest of the world'.
