Description

This book is a celebration of all that is dreich. To my mind, the images in this book are uplifting and joyful. There is nothing miserable about dreich. A sunny day has no more right to exist than a dreich one. Here, then, are fifty dreich images, accompanied by fifty equally dreich captions

  3. Include your Return Authorisation Number - make sure this is included inside the package.
  4. Address your package: Returns Dept, Penny Black Glasgow Ltd, 721-723 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 8QX.
  5. Send It.  It is advised that you use Royal Mail Recorded Delivery to return your item so you can ensure receipt at our warehouse. The package is your responsibility until it arrives at our warehouse, so we recommend that you keep a certificate of posting for your records.

In the unlikely case that the items are received damaged or not re-saleable, we reserve the right not to provide a refund to you and you will be responsible for the cost of such items being returned to you within 28 days. This does not affect your statutory rights.
