This is the absolute perfect book to be sat around on a coffee table or bedside cabinet. I have been dipping in and out of it for months, reading it slowly but spending so much more time looking at the fantastic photos, drawings and prints. It is very informative and covers a wide range of subjects, even though some of those seem to be dealt with a bit too briefly. But a fantastic book that I while keep for ages.
