Incredible images, unreadable text, 29 Nov 2013
Beautiful pictures, fascinating information, but spoilt by hard to read coloured text on black backgrounds.
The designer has not considered the comfort of the reader. Expect eyestrain as you try to read it. The glossary, bibliography and index are black text on white, but the font is the tiniest I've seen.
A big disappointment, as the information is terrific, but who wants to read an unreadable book? They have made a coffee table picture book out of a what should have been a useful scientific reference work.
