As a huge Stephan Martiniere for many years, I was thrilled at the idea of another book full of his work. While any book of his artwork is a welcome addition to my library, this one was just a bit disappointing in the number of works included. It's a little slimmer (64 pages, compared to his other 2 books' 80 & 95 pages), and is filled with more sketchwork than before. That's not a bad thing, but I much prefer his glorious illustrated environments.
The finished illustrations, particularly the book covers, don't appear quite as sharp and polished on the larger page size as they do on the smaller bookcover formats they were designed for. That's not a critique of the quality at all, just a reality of commercial illustration for a specific-sized format.
Regardless of those minor criticisms, this is a must-own. Looking forward to more volumes of his work in the future.
