Dear Permies all,
i purchased Bill Mollison's Permaculture book in response to this ad, and was very appreciative of the giant discount!  This was many weeks ago, but not months.
My friend started having permaculture symptoms, so, i bought it for him, too.
However, it appears that it's a one-time deal, the coupon PERMIES2022, until July 31, 2022, because i couldn't use it today, July 17, 2022.  it said "coupon limit has been reached" no matter what i tried.
so, that's my $.02.
take care,
dave

To me that symbol represents permaculture.

A snake surrounding an apple tree with land (soil), sun, and water.

Plants need soil, sun, and water to survive.

The snake and the apple tree remind me of the Garden of Eden.

What does it look like to you?

Mollison explains the picture on the front of the book.  the snake imagery is an Aboriginal people's symbol, but i'm not near my book now to get more details.  it's in there...

Thank you daliyish for the discount code at the publisher. I just ordered for $106.27 including shipping, which is a substantial discount from other available sources. USD to AUD conversion rate helped the transaction favorably.

I give this book 10 out of 10 acorns.

Very informative!  As stated, takes dedication to read in it's entirety but worth the work.  I agree, if you only read one Permaculture book make it this one.

The Big Black Book will not only introduce you to permaculture but cause your creative thoughts about it to multiply exponentially!  This book is like the bedrock of a foundation.  It gives us the information to build upon.  From here we can create healthy spaces for ourselves, family, friends, acquaintances and customers.  Other permaculture books are fantastic but, they build upon what we already learned in the Big Black Book.  This is also an immense addition to my permie library.
