The artwork (included in two small sections) was reproduced from originals donated by Noble himself and/or collectors, not screen grabs.
The problem is that the book is small in more ways than one; none of the layouts can be shown at actual size, so it is difficult to see the detail.
The book is well written and long overdue. Maybe we can now have a companion volume with full sized, color artwork. Noble deserves the same treatment as the latest 'blockbuster' that was highly influenced by his groundbreaking style.
