FINALLY with utmost joy I can announce my NEW book 'On Expedition & Tribal Art' with many photos of N.-Philippine (very rare) textiles and textile objects.

After ten years my idea and unique concept has finally been 'materialised'. It were especially the unique material -not only fantastic photos but more the information I gathered during my expedition- and the heap of fantastic photos that have kept me going to make this book and pursue. All photos in the book are really the BEST OF THE BEST out of an immens amount of photos I have. And the result is stunning . . . . .. !



One of the listings on Ebay (Buy Now/bids will be removed); http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... CA:US:1123
(Also; look at 'sellers other items' for more copies or buy 1 and can adjust invoice)

The book is;
- a unique concept of 2 main parts; a short and succinct story of Tribal Art and all aspects that has to do with it (curiosity cabinets, impressionism Paris, photograhpy, science, collectors etc). And the 2nd part; The Expedition through the territories of several 'igorot' tribes (Ifugao, Bontoc, Kalinga, Gaddang and Ilongot); an exciting "travel"story in which I go searching for the last wooden houses, tattooed people and antiques penetrating very remote areas of inland Luzon, Philippines. - two extra chapters; 'Sarcophagi, mummies and deathchairs' and 'Two interviews with Ilongot Chiefs' - The text is really interesting and attractively written. In most books the text is often (to my opinion) just a 'filler up' and I spend special attention to this in my book. Beside the interesting info it is also easy to read.

ALL (PHILIPPINE) OBJECTS DEPCTED IN THE BOOK ARE FROM MY OWN PRIVATE COLLECTION AND CANNOT BE SEEN ANYWHERE ELSE/ANY OTHER BOOK! ( copyright Kleiman) is put on only on EBAYpics and not in the book.

> 500 copies ONLY of this QLTY book!! Set PRICE $45.00 per copy as I dont have an ebaystore(yet?!). When ordering 3 books (discount; shippingprice of 1 copy) or more than 8 books a lower dealerprice is available. Contact me pls.

Some general info; 108 pages, quality paper, soft touch soft cover, thread bound (NOT falling apart after few years), 125 photos, all edited, translated and designed by me. English. measures; 29 x 23 (wider than A4)

Shipping; ONE to THREE copy Europe or Worldwide $13.00

FOUR to EIGHT copies Europe $26.00 and worldwide $45.00 but LOWER price p book

XXXX THANKS FOR READING AND YOUR INTEREST!! xxx

Hi Wouter

The book looks great! I hope you don't mind but I moved your post through onto the Books section of the forum and left a shadow post on the 'Selling...' section. Thanks for your restraint in this respect!

I also hope you don't mind but, after a bit of a struggle, I managed to 'translate' your YouTube link into showing direct in the post the video of you turning the pages of your book.

I am a bit confused by the Ebay link. Is it possible to order direct from you (if I email you) and pay you directly via PayPal? In the UK would I be a $45 purchase which includes the book plus mailing costs?

I wish you every success with the book!

Hello Pamela,
thank you for the compliment. Yes saw you moved it; sorry for not seen there was a 'booksection'. Great job on 'upgrading' the youtubefilm. Yes guess we all like to rummage to see if the item is something for you or not. Though one cant see/read any text in the film and the photos are also not showing their true great quality.

For convenience of the general public I have the books for sale on Ebay (ONLY 'Buy Now' dont bid pls) but one can ofcourse also buy them directly from me. Just mail me (wtckleiman@gmail.com). Payng can be via bank or paypal. Price same $45,- or E35,- and ordering from me directly saves you $3,- on shipping ($10,- in stead of $13,-). When ordering 3or more books discounts count.

Think the text is really as nice and attractive to read as the photos are nice and written for a general public but is interesting for special collectors too.

XXXX P.S. sorry for my late reply. Bringing out a book was a hell of a job already, but selling n shipping etc the books turns out to be a job on its own. 500 copies only and first 3 boxes are sold already. Books will be shipped in a save bubblewrap-envelope n hard carton to garantee pristine arrival.
