Book is well written and put together in easy reference sections. Great content for hafted stone heads. Book priced fair and showed up in good condition and timely.

Format: Paperback
A very nice resource for type, style, and era. However, from an instructional or educational perspective it is essentially a picture book. It leaves me with plenty of questions regarding the entire subject area. But all in all it is still handy as a reference and was worth the price.
