p.s. Just watched your video on the amazon site and noticed you showed a smaller version of this box in a video. Should have known you saw it before! Mark
this book may be 'Small' in size, but it's 'X-Large' in content. I've always loved the graphic arts- especially when the
boxes they're printed on contain man's favorite food! (And women's too.) Buy this book! But beware-if you read it in the
afternoon, you'll be phoning for a pizza delivery that very night!
