Though this work was published after his two previous popular books, "Masquerade" and "Bee on the Comb", it contains works done before. With a short biographical introduction it starts with his early artistic adventures then goes on to detailed, if eclectic, subjects, blending Realism with whimsy. The final pages showcase his ingenious and mechanically marvelous sculptures which are exquisitely painted, with detailed marquetry and metalwork. The printed page shows but a shadow of what these constructions must be like in 3D.
If you like his other work, and you can find this one, buy it!

I bought this cuz i liked Masquerade and The Book With No Name so much. Love love love this guy's art. An aside: judging by the two books mentioned, I had a suspicion Kit was um let's say rather fond of the ladies, and this collection seems to confirm it. Can't say I blame him :)
