Okay, here's how to order An American Century of Photography from countries other than the U.S.
The Museum Store is not set up to accept non-U.S. orders online. So if you'd like to order a book, please email the store at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, country, and address including postal code. They'll calculate shipping charges, and if you're still interested, you can work out with them how to pay.
Just to prevent confusion: this post pertains to FOREIGN ORDERS ONLY. If you're in the United States, you can purchase a copy of the book for half price by visiting the sale page and entering 19333 in the box labeled "Promotional Code" on the left hand side of the checkout page.
Mind you, the shipping charges are likely to be high. It's a Museum Store in the middle of the continental United States. Ninety-nine percent of its sales take place inside the Museum itself. They don't commonly get orders from foreign countries, they don't do a lot of shipping, and they don't have volume arrangements with shippers. The cost will be just as high as if you were to take a 9–10 lbs. (4–4.5 kilo) package to your local shipper and have it sent to Missouri, plus handling.
I have my doubts as to whether this will be practical and cost-effective. But we'd like to do whatever we can to accommodate all our readers, no matter where they live. I hope this does that.
About 800 copies of the book have been ordered so far, and there should be about 400 left. As I mentioned before, the Store staff is working overtime, but it's going to take them a while to get all the books shipped—it's a big task. Your patience is appreciated!
P.S. To answer an earlier question, yes, if you live in Kansas City, Missouri, you can go to the Museum Store at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in person and ask for a discount by mentioning The Online Photographer and using the coupon code 19333.

Samuli: "One option is to use packet forwarding services that are available in the US. I have used www.shipito.com few times in order to get stuff to Finland from US Amazon or some other webshop that doesn't ship outside US. The forwarding costs are reasonable and often cheaper than using what is available otherwise."
