Piedra Pintada Books carries a very large selection of titles on rock art. Every in-print title listed on this web site is currently in-stock. Your books are usually shipped within two to four days of receiving your order and payment. Your check will not be deposited until after your order ships. If you require your order be received by a given deadline, please contact us in advance so that we may pre-package your order so that it is ready to go in anticipation of receipt of your payment.

Return Policy

If for any reason whatsoever, you are dissatisfied with a title, simply return the book(s) (carefully packed to protect it during postal transit) and you will receive a full refund for the titles purchased, less the original shipping charge. Any books returned due to damage during postal transit will be replaced, and we will reimburse you (reasonably - book rate not air freight) for the return shipping charge. Books returned for refund must be received within one month after receipt, and they must be unmarked and in new condition (unless damaged in original transit).

Dust Jackets

In order to preserve the investment you are making in your Rock Art Library, all books (new or used) sold with dust jackets (dj) come protected with an acetate dust jacket cover.

Payment Options

Payment may be made in the form of PayPal, personal check, travelers check, or money order, payable upon a US bank and in US dollars. Residents of California will have to add 7-1/2% of the subtotal to cover state sales tax. Also, please remember to include the shipping charge.

Checks should be made out to Piedra Pintada or Piedra Pintada Books.
