So if music was your thing thru all those years...this is such a plus bonus. We have talked about making a music room one day & it will honestly be a focus point out on the table. You have to grab it & look thru it if it's in front of you. It's so sturdy, well made, pretty. It's why I called it "table top elegant". This book doesn't need to be on a shelf. It's index is divided by album cover name & also by the artist as well. It doesn't go by years & start from the earliest leading up. It is divided by topics. Rock & Roll, Sex, drugs, and so forth. Which I really like a lot. If your a guest visiting and you see this, you won't have a few hours to sit and read thru a picture book. So the dividing of it's chapters by topic lets you zero in immediately to the types of albums you loved the most. I love Trivia. We call that useless knowledge. It has a loads of tid bits & trivia about the artist & that certain album your looking at in the book.
It's such a personal "perfect" gift if you share music with someone you love. It's owning a record of our past for sure.
