Reviews - What do customers think about WassinkLundgren: Empty Bottles?
A fascinating book. Apr 4, 2009
This is a slim, well crafted book. At first, I was put off by the book's packaging. However, I soon realized that the exposed binding stitching and simple cover and page layout gives this book a hand-crafted look. I have decided that all this works because it meshes nicely with the content. As mundane as picking up empty bottles may seem, it makes for interesting photography.
