I LOVE John Mellencamp's paintings and this book has beautiful color photos of some of his best. The only bad thing about this book is that I get all depressed looking through it because I need these in my house and I can't afford them. :( But other than that, this book is amazing- wonderful coffee table book and great gift for anyone!
