    Publisher reviews

    Parade's Best Books about Movies and TV 2013"With some of the year's most interesting design, Elysium was ripe for a great "Art of..." book and Mark Salisbury delivered." Starburst Magazine03/09/2013"Crammed full of stunning production stills, art designs from the celebrated Weta Workshop and closer looks at props you may have missed, this book serves as the ideal complement to Blomkamp's latest sci-fi thriller." Books Monthly01/09/2013 "This beautiful book examines the extraordinary and mind-boggling work that goes into producing such a film, the prosthetics, the model-making, the CGI, the concept art... This is a monumentally good keepsake, another huge winner from front-runner Titan Books, now recognised as one of the strongest publishers in the field of movie books. Amazing." Hollywood Chicago08/12/2013""Elysium: The Art of the Film" is superior to most companion books partially by the wealth of information in it but also because of the quality of that information. It doesn't merely serve to accompany your favorite sci-fi flick of the Summer, it tries to enhance it. More "Art of the Film" books should do the same." Adventures in Poor Taste08/11/2013"The Stanley Kubrick Archives come to mind when reading this book, partly because there's so much detail that wasn't on screen, but also because the notes, contribution from actors and design folks are so complete it's like you're on set. 9.5/10" Geek Smash08/10/2013"A beautiful book from cover to cover." Culture Mass08/06/2013"AMAZING: Gorgeous!" City of Films08/29/2013"It's a beautifully well-crafted book that will help you imagine a world in 2154. It's a fantastic art book companion to the film." Retrenders08/14/2013"If you like Robotech-style mecha, Star Wars-style spaceships, Mad Max-style vehicles, Halo-style weapons, and Gundam-style space colonies, well, this art book has it all!" Movies.com08/06/2013 "As with all of Titan Books' film-related releases, it's a fascinating journey behind the creative curtain." IHO Geek08/31/2013"if you are a sci-fi lover, an art lover, or a fan of Elysium then I recommend you pick it up." Joblo08/27/2013"Titan Books have scored themselves another winner with ELYSIUM: THE ART OF THE FILM, a fantastic companion piece to the Matt Damon-starring sci-fi hit." Based on Nothing09/15/2013"A great addition for anyone looking to study how art affects a film before, during, and after the process of." Giant Fire Breathing Robot09/15/2013"It's a beautiful oversize coffee table book with some great images and interesting tidbits about the creation of Elysium." Concept Cookie09/15/2013"A fantastic sci-fi concept art book and holds a high level of content and concept pieces to be admired. It is impressive on not only execution of quality but the level of inspiring creative pieces that were included as well. There is an overwhelming amount of content and if you enjoy sci-fi, then this is not one to be passed up" "The entire book is an amazing insight into the world of visual and special effects concepts...impressive..." - Imagine FX "An eye-popping collection" - Television Without Pity

Please note items may dispatch in separate or combined shipments when purchasing multiple items, also that tracking may or may not be available as we use a range of postal delivery companies and couriers.

    Calculating estimated delivery times

    Delivery is estimated at 1-3 working days after dispatch (depending upon options chosen at checkout) PLUS the "Availability" time estimate given in the product price section at the top of the page. Ex. if this states "Usually Dispatched Within 1 Working Day" and you order at 11am the delivery estimate would be 3 days. Orders from 6pm for example wouldn't process that day so delivery estimate would be 4 days. Also please note that we do not dispatch on the weekend and do not class these as working days.

    Delivery Issues

    What if my order hasn't dispatched within the dispatch time estimate?

    Sorry if this occurs with your order - we are still processing the order and will dispatch ASAP. Typically any delays encountered are for just a 24 hour period. If you wish to cancel the order & source elsewhere please contact us.

    What if my shipment is overdue?

    In the event of 15 working days (25 for non UK customers) passing from the point of dispatch with no goods being received we will confirm the delivery address with yourself and normally would either dispatch a replacement shipment or issue a refund.

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item if we are not at fault - If needed a freepost return address can be given for any defective or incorrect product, please contact us if this is the case. If you are shipping an item over £75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don't guarantee that we will receive your returned item.

To be eligible for a return reasonable care must be taken to return the goods in the condition received. Ideally this would be returned in the original packaging.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.

    Why is next day delivery not available?

    As the site gets bigger it will be but we don't have sufficient volume to offer this currently.

    Can I collect from your warehouse?

    No sorry. We are internet trading only, previously we did have a bookshop where this was possible.

    How can I enter a coupon code?

    On the cart page under the "Use A Coupon" tab.

    Do you guarantee delivery by a particular date?

    No we don't sorry - we ship to over 100 countries through many different carriers and cannot offer a guarantee that your order will arrive within a particular timeframe.

    Can I order by phone?

    Sorry this isn't available for smaller orders (under £250), the costs of telephone staff don't cover the extra sales generated.

    Do you have fly fishing by JR Hartley?

    Sorry out of stock - if it's not for sale on the site we don't have it. We may add the ability to pre-order titles in the future.

    Are all items held in stock?

    Not all - we have over £900,000 of stock in our warehouse but would need tens of millions of pounds worth of inventory to have just 1 copy of everything for sale on the site. We place daily orders with in excess of 100 publishers and wholesalers who typically deliver into us next day. Also please note if placing a larger order the delivery time frame may slightly increase due to the need to possibly source titles from multiple suppliers. Please note this is the same model used by nearly all online booksellers.

    I'm pleased with your service and want to leave a review of your site?

    Please if you are so inclined leave a review on Google. We seem to have picked up 6 bad reviews and just 4 good ones (from over 170k orders under the booksplease name). Hardly anyone leaves a review for us on there but this is the first thing you see googling our name so we rely on happy customers helping us out.

    I've never ordered off you is it safe?

    It's safe & all will be ok - you may have ordered from us before under our previous selling name "Aphrohead" - we have processed around 18,000,000 orders since the companies formation in 2005. We are located in Southport, UK
