The article refers to my book which consists of photographs I took from the 2006 Soccer World Championship in Japan. All the Brazilians that purchased the book were very impressed and is a treasure to the fans of the Team that won the Title.

 If Blurbs shipping price was cheaper to Brazil I could sell easily hundreds possibly thousands of books there to passionate fan. Problem is shipping is too expensive to Brazil…if Blurb could only figure this out both Blurb and I could make some nice sales down there…considering this book has a market of about 5 Million very passionate people.

PS:

 

The author of the colum got his hands on the book and loved it. The book is also in the Sports Museum in the city of Porto Alegre in Southern Brazil…and the team used some of the images in my book for the teams offcial movie which was recently released.

Impressive LouisS…congrats from all of us here at Blurb.

To your shipping question…we hope to have a more cost effective solution for our friends in Brazil in early 2008.

Is that gonna be a shipping solution or is it even possible that Blurb may have a printer in Brazil? Brazil is a huge market (200 Million) and could be a good option…
