Beautiful package, poor paper and print quality 10 May 2014

Nice package design and absolutely wonderful content, but sadly let down by very poor quality paper and print quality. I was expecting a lot more.

By In Residence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The production is exceptional in my copy including the printing. The images and indexing are especially well handled. Though it did not strike me as particularly biographical, Sudjic's text provides ample contextual information with plenty of references to other members of Kuramata's milieu. In total, this excellent two volume edition is certainly a worthy monument to the brilliant designer whose career it represents.
