Illustrations deserve better, 6 Oct 2009
Marjorie Blamey's illustrations are her usual high standard, it's a shame the same cannot be said for this A & C Blacks publication. The paper is so thin that the print shows through the pages and many have been badly and to closely trimmed. The layout is far from convenient with the illustrations being grouped together in a separate section remote from the descriptive text and diagrams. A little more thought and less penny pinching could have resulted in a much more useful and aesthetically pleasing guide.
