Reviews - What do customers think about Two Faced: The Changing Face of Portraiture?
Very creative Jul 13, 2007
Incredible. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it shares some content with older publications like "Illusive" - Which is a very hard book to beat. It sways between straightforward design and illustration to the very abstract, which I think is great.
