Overseas Delivery Information

The UK’s departure from the European Union, and subsequent new trading arrangements, is causing disruption. Hawthorn Press has now suspended deliveries to Europe and the EU.

We ask that overseas customers be mindful of the following:


Where applicable, prices include VAT (books are currently zero rated in the UK). If you are ordering for delivery outside of the UK, you will be responsible for payment of any local taxes payable including VAT, and will be required to pay extra for delivery and clearance where necessary.

Customs Charges

If you are ordering books for delivery outside of the UK, please note that your consignment may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the goods reach the country of destination. We recommend that you check with your local post office for more information regarding charges that may apply to your order. Any such charges must be paid by you the customer/importer of record.

If you have difficulty with the shopping basket, or have a question about your order, please e-mail nathan at
