This rating is unfair to the author and publisher, but represents my disappointment with the item received based on the prices currently being charged for it, and which I paid, which, with hindsight, must be based on the fact that this book is perhaps now out of print? I love Brian Andreas. The internet is is full of his pieces, illustrated in vibrant colours, a joy to look at; and I ordered this book expecting to receive a large, full colour, coffee table book. Instead I received a standard sized, black and white print paperback which would fit in my pocket. Whilst the book still contains a wealth of Andreas' gems, it is not the quality item I was anticipating; such a shame.
