Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is really informative, but the subject matter is a bit depressing. The paper is nice, relatively thick stock, semi-glossy. The photos are pretty high quality. The book is a bit big for most bookshelves, but great for coffeetables. The writing is great and the subject is interesting.
