There are several books featuring Antonio and his work yet somehow none of them really conveys his multiple facets and talents to their fullest extent.
Lovely images but nothing really gets the new generation to understand his brilliant range of illustration techniques, his ability to perfectly capture the moment and his extraordinary joie de vivre.
He was a unique talent and we are still waiting for another unique talent to capture him in print in book form.

4.0 out of 5 stars A treat for fans 25 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
People who like Antonio's work probably have earlier books. This one tells more about Antonio as a person, and provides quite a lot of trivia about his friends and muses.
