As a collage artist, collector of popup books and books like Nick Bantock's Griffin & Sabine, I think this is a great disappointment in every way ... and most certainly for the price. As to the work itself ... it's interesting but a masterpiece? marvel? I don't think so. I have a similar work in progress that someone will discover in my basement one day and am aware of many other altered works by people I know (and people I don't) that are marvels, masterpieces with a great deal to learn from.
I've never returned a book before ... this will be my first.

I have other material covering this information. I wanted it as a gift for my son, but realized the overlap in the subject matter. I would consider another Cornell Book in trade. Read morePublished on January 3, 2013 by Edward Flynn Ed Flynn
