PACKAGING: We try to use recycled products or to recycle materials whenever possible, thus your order occasionally may contain styrofoam, plastic bubblewrap, or other; rather than just discarding this material, consider reusing it yourself.

Retail Outlets

Some of titles also are available in select regional bookstores (which see below). We suggest our books be displayed in the Local Interest or Indiana Section, but sometimes they get placed in the Animals, Plants, Gardening, or General Science sections. We recommend you contact the store in advance to confirm that they have the title(s) you want in stock.

The least expensive option for all our publications is obtained by working directly with the Academy. Sales tax will be applied to all purchases at retail stores.

We should not forget that books undoubtedly are one of mankind's most outstanding achievements. There is nothing quite like the pleasure one derives from holding and devouring a good book.
