Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are truly interested in the work of Waterhouse DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. The images are small and poorly reproduced. Check the size of the pages and you will realize what postage stamps the images are.
If you are truly interested in the work of Waternouse get Hobson's book. There is very little price difference and it has normal pages sizes which beautifully reproduced photographs of the paintings.
The accompanying text is far more illuminating than the drivel printed in this book.

To an avid admirer of the art of JW Waterhouse, this little book that could is a grand addition to a collection. The book is small enough to fit in your pocket, purse, or briefcase; perfect to slip out at moments you want to show a friend or coworker an example of that amazing artist.
The most brilliant part of the book is the way that it was made with several close up pictures of small areas of a certain painting, followed by a one or two page reproduction of the painting as a whole. This is a wonderful way for the admirer of Waterhouse's art to notice intricacies of the masterpieces that are not clear to see in Hobson's book. Also, I believe the reproductions in this book are superior to Hobson's. The lines appear crisper and more defined in this version, and the faces seem more expressive because of it.
A definite find, and a grand addition to anyone's collection!! I was not dissapointed in the least by this little book.

A waste of money especially if you are buying from another currency into american dollars. Buy something normal sized and get better quality reproductions. The book is acutally only about 4inches square - I thought previous reviews by other customers meant it was say a half-size A4, not so small I can put it in my top pocket and lose it!

I thought this book charming. It is a minature size but is ideal for giving as a gift to a fellow Waterhouse lover. There are a couple of paintings reproduced which aren't in the other Hobson books. Each painting is accompanied by a carefully chosen poetry fragment. I'm not sure why the previous reviewer called such text drivel - I would certainly not call the poetry of Alfred Lord Tennyson drivel!

This mini-book is a beautiful collection of Waterhouse
paintings. Most of the paintings revolve around mythical
or poetic references which are explained in the appendix.

I am ordering my second copy so I can tear one apart and
use the pictures in crafts (like refrigerator magnets).

This little book is a pretty and informative presentation of Waterhouse's beautiful, sensual paintings. I especially liked the inclusion of the poems and text related to the painting subjects. The myth and legend summarys in the back are useful too.
