1. The layout of the book is that any page you open up, on the right hand side there will be a full page poster. On the back is info about the designer of the poster, plus a few smaller images of the designer's work. The kicker here is that that the pages are all perforated so you display the posters as art in your home. A lot of these posters are out of print or sold out from the designer, so whether or not you chose to keep the posters the size in the book or enlarge them, you now have the chance to display many rare and beautiful posters.
2. It makes a great coffee table book. This is a great conversation starter and most music fans will be delighted to discover this book either at the bookstore or at a friend's house.
3. It showcases what has become a legitimate art form over the past 10 years. These artists have style all their own in the same way that artists working in other mediums do. This book will most likely provide a shot in the arm to a burgeoning art scene.
Whether or not you use this book to decorate your home, or add it to your personal library, it's a fantastic book. I can't wait for Volume 2!
However, I personally like the variety in the second edition, compared to this one. If you're only getting one, I'd recommend the second.
