In store at Cambodia’s Monument Books as of April 2, 2015 and on its way shortly after that to stores in Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. When Clouds Fell from the Sky is a fascinating, powerful book by South African journalist Robert Carmichael that looks at the causes and consequences of the Khmer Rouge’s catastrophic rule of Cambodia between 1975-79. We are working to get copies into Asia Books before Songkran. In the meantime, Asia Horizons Books can easily organize to (express) ship copies to buyers in Thailand. For people living outside the region, Carmichael’s book is currently available in Kindle format through Amazon.

The new version of the Angkor book ELEGY by John McDermott is hitting the store. It looks great and was printed in Bangkok at Amarin Printing, my usual printer. Hired as a Production Consultant on this rather big job has been a very interesting experience, knowing that the prior edition was done at EDS in Italy! It’s been printed as tri-tone +1 pms on 157gsm OJI artmatt from Japan.
We have just received (and also delivered) the first few sets of the special edition of the book with its case and print. We will post more pictures and details of it later.
Got the first copies in hands, now ready to start shipping a few hundreds copies to pre-ordered clients in Laos. Then we’ll supply our distributors juste in time for the Xmas shopping!
This time around, the English edition and a new edition in French will be only done with a hard cover and it has a new design. It is now almost certain that a version in Khmer language will come along as well (subject to some funding on the way). As of now a launch party has been secure together with a photo exhibition at the Meta House in Phnom Penh on the 17 April 2015. We expect to go to print this December at Amarin printing in Bangkok.
Size is 17 cm by 24 cm with 216 pages.
We are now preparing a new edition of the book Luang Prabang Watercolors… New hard-cover and redesigned. As well a special edition with a clamshell case and a print reproduction will be on offer… Launch in the fall of 2014,
We have just replenished our stock of books at AMAZON in the US… and we offer the best price anywhere, also shipping (standard) can be as low as free in the US and still cost a maximum of about US$5 for almost anywhere in the world.
Our printer in Bangkok (AMARIN) got a golden award [7th Thai Print Awards 2012] for book printing with Greg’s book Exile to Nowhere… A job for which we were Publishing Consultant, and we are very pleased! Hope they’ll like us as client… and hope to eventually print other books there.
