fantastic XL pictures it is a great book and sorry that the publisher will not reprint this book at the moment. It is worth it.
delightful mini Jan 23, 2007
This book is really mini, tiny and it works for a curious glimpse at this wonderful piece of art. It has no text and shows extracted parts of the piece that are zoomed in order to see the details. The printing is very good and colorful.
