The Blue Book sells for £72 plus shipping (academic, de­vel­op­ing country, and volume discounts apply). The pub­li­ca­tion can be purchased through the IASB web shop.

Please note that the IASB has already published editorial corrections to the Blue Book 2016 that show how to adjust the text of the book to remove those deferred September 2014 amendments to IAS 28 and IFRS 10, which are not now required for annual reporting periods beginning on 1 January 2016.
