Big, beautiful book, illustrations on every page- gorgeous photos and paintings. As a long-time artist and Mainer, I even came away with a couple of new discoveries- painters I hadn't seen before. What makes this book great is that the contributions are all from different authors, different points of view, and despite the publication date, none of it seems dated. This was the last of ten or so books I purchased while researching a novel, and I still got information from it that was completely new to me. Definitely recommend purchasing, whether for research or the pure pleasure of thumbing through it. The stories are mostly only a couple of pages long- I plan on keeping this book around for years, and can see myself picking it up to periodically re-read one or two, as well as family members casually glancing, then getting enthralled with the contents. It's not a travel book, though- it's heavy, so I wouldn't try carrying it around, if that's an issue for you!
