A glossy cover,
This review is from: "Reader's Digest" Book of British Birds (Deluxe Edition) (Hardcover)
I am disappointed with the 'look inside' feature on this book review. Yes, the cover has a stunning photo (and the book is a lovely glossy hardback in a presentation box) and yes, there are some more beautiful photographs shown in the 'look inside' feature. But that is it. The book actually contains artwork (good, but not fine, quality) which is reused from the Readers Digest Book of British Birds from nearly thirty years ago - my husband has that book! It is such a disappointment to be misled into thinking the book may contain more stunning modern photography. The section on egg identification is also a bit scant, too. I think my parents' Readers Digest Field Guide to the birds of Britain (more than thirty years old) contains better material. A great book if you are looking for a reprint of old material.
