Well worth the investment if you are interested in getting the most out of your printer. And all down to one guy voiding the warranty..

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait, 22 Oct 2013

Pre ordered this book months ago and was beginning to get frustrated with the delay in the publishers releasing this product in the UK, but it was well worth the wait. Powerful images that continue the style and form of his previous two books.
The format is strong, with the images mostly being on one page, so nothing is lost (publishers please take note on this point). The detail in each image holds the eye and with the focus not always where you expect it to be, subtle details of the land or the animals are revealed. The images are printed wonderfully in the edition I got.
The animals once again are the stars, both alive and sadly dead. The destruction of land and animal is clearly seen in these images, even when the land is the cause of that death. The haunting images of the bats amongst the thorns would have inspired many a gothic stone mason.
You end up feeling the loss of friends, as the role call of the poachers victims is called out, each one makes you return to his early books to see those animals alive.

A powerhouse of a book, both visually and emotional that captures the ability of humanity to destroy and yet, there is the hope still.

5.0 out of 5 stars grown up lass, 22 Nov 2003
This review is from: At Last (Audio CD)
this is an album that proves that all along Cyndi was more than a manufactured pop singer in the early years. Showing the depth of voice and style that was always there on the early albums, this album is a record that says singer and songs don't need hype or over the top marketing. Record companies take note..stop wasting time on disposable rubbish and become more green and invest in renewable artists! The title track At Last, says it all, power and control and a song that sends goosebumps up the skin..this is a girl having fun with real music!
