The gift card I requested was never included and the green colour special plastic cover which the book was enclosed in was badly damaged and was a big disapointment, perhaps a more sturdy material should be used, specially when being shipped internationally. Sad to see the condition in which it was recived!
The "full" edition is too expensive for me so I decided to get a mini one. Even though it's not a full sized one, it has all essential info for the architecture lovers/students.
