I know, shipping internationally sucks!! It was important to Milivoj that we keep the cost of the book low, so we didn't inflate the cost of the book to mask shipping charges. If we can get enough quantity of international orders, we will be able to work with a fulfillment house in Europe and get reduced shipping. If that comes to fruition, we will refund the savings to the international backers. Until we get enough international backers though, no one will even talk to us about international fulfillment.
If we are able to arrange discounted international shipping, we will announce it in the updates.
Thank you for your interest in the project.
