The examples chosen are rich and varied and are divided thematically.The problem is that so many of the books are enormously intriguing that one wants to handle them to discover their mysteries. However the descriptions are usually very good and do allow one to at least understand the concept of the creator.If you love books as art, this is a truly wonderful possession.
The price is ok between quality and artwork.
All the artwork is innovative.
If you can buy it, just do it, don't hesitate.
