Reviews - What do customers think about Brussels Style (Icons)?
Good photography but was expecting more Sep 23, 2006
I gave the book 3 stars because I was expecting a bit more from the book. Great photography but the layout is what really disappoints.All the explanations to the pictures are to be found at the end of the book. I think the editor could have done something a bit more practical without taking away from the pictures with the explanations or at least locations to be found on the pages itself. Also, and this can be accounted for in the cost of the book, the size, just about 8 inches does little justice to the pictures.Having grown up and lived in Brussels and being a big fan of Belgian design and living I was hoping for more.
