Photoshop Channel Chops, where to buy?
I'm trying to get my hands on a copy of "Photoshop Channel Chops" (ISBN: 1562057235). But it doesnt seem to be very easy to get your hands of this book. Does any one know where I can buy a copy of it? There is a used copy for sale at Amazon but I find that 120$ is a bit too much...
Im located in Sweden so I need some place that support international shipping.
Thanks for the help!
Not sure why the Amazon ones are so high as I found many in the $20s. There do appear to be two different dates for this book 1997 and 1998.
The site below is one example of a 1997 version and offers international shipping:

Wow! I bought this really easily two years ago -- I had no idea it had become so difficult to find!
Reiter's claim to have it for US$39.99
Amazon.ca marketplace claims to have it for CDN$52.67
Blackwell's (US) claims to have it for US$43.99
I don't know about shipping on any of those. There aren't any copies on Abebooks or Alibris.
Peachpit does look like the best bet.
Thanx for the help.
I found it at PeachPit a month ago but they do not accept my creditcards for some strange reason. Tried both my VISA and MC. They still don't like 'em...
I ordered it from Rieters which looked to be working fine except I didn't get info about the shipping cost... Can they be trusted? I have not heard of them before.
Reiters don't have it
Got this reply from Reiters:
Thank you for your order. Unfortunately the book that you requested is not currently in stock. I checked with the publisher to see if the book is available and they now list it as “indefinitely out of stock” so that we cannot obtain a copy for you.
I have cancelled your order and your credit card will not be charged.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Its not that easy to get your hands on this book....
It's crazy! If it weren't such a good book I'd offer you my copy... but sadly it is such a good book and no one else is getting their hands on it...
The only thing that occurs is that maybe they are planning a new edition to go along with new versions of PS and that's why the old edition has been allowed to go out of print? It might be worth contacting the publisher to see if that is the case.
Sorry, this came up as a new post when I logged in today... it's not.

Jonas, The is a brand new book released a few weeks ago called The Photoshop Channels Book by Scott Kelby and also published by Peachpit Press but is is now widely available through all the major book retailers. It has a lot of useful and upto date techniques regarding Channel blending and masking. However, I do not have Channel Chops so I can't tell you how it compares.
