Undoubtedly a lovely book but...,
This review is from: J.C. Leyendecker (Hardcover)
For pictures and quality prints this is one of the best (if not one of the only) Leyendecker collections widely available. It's a very lovely tome with a beautiful cover beneath it's dust cover and wonderful prints on glossy pages. The only thing which stopped me from giving this the full 5 stars is, as mentioned by every other reviewer too, the text.
I bought the book knowing the text was biased, ignorant, worthless - take your pick - so I had no intention of reading it too thoroughly, though even a cursory glance shows just how unimpressive the opinions of the authors are, and I don't intend to read much further into the book. The forgeries noted by others are also glaringly obvious which is a real shame, nonetheless, for a collection of Leyendecker's work and for this price, I don't regret my purchase.
