If it is must to find something negative, let's say some drawings are really tiny (some 3x3 in or 7x7 cm) - see sample images. Every single one deserves full size and I believe it was painful deciding which drawings keep and which ones shrink....
It is impossible to name my favorite drawings, easier task is select those several which are 'not as favorite as other ones'.
This book simply exceeded my expectations and the price is really nice. If you are wondering about it, grab it!
