If you're reading this review, chances are you're aware of Dave McKean's art, probably his brilliant covers on the Sandman comics. Well, this is not more of the same. The Small Book of Black and White lies is a collection of McKean's black and white (surprise, surprise) photography. McKean's innovative use of graphic editing really comes into its own here, with some truly brilliant images, ranging from the dark and atmospheric, to the beautiful, to the utterly bizarre. I'd recommend this as a coffee-table book, but it's limited edition, so perhaps not. Instead, keep it safe and cherish the genius within.
