Beautiful book full of promises, few of which it delivers on. It's a love letter to comedia dell'arte; the author is obviously knowledgeable and excited about the subject. But the book is poorly organized, hard to follow and impossible to use as a reference. Still, makes for a nice coffee table adornment.
