5.0 out of 5 stars ...so this'll be the Flâneur's Pocket Edition, eh?, 15 Oct 2009
By 
This review is from: The Painter of Modern Life and Other Essays (Arts and Letters) (Paperback)
If you're thinking of buying this, you probably already have some idea of the content, so I'll crit it as an objet...

This is a beautifully produced, highly portable volume. Naturally, this has only been possible by squeezing more words onto less paper. Margins are tight so it can feel a little bit claustrophobic and the paper is almost bible thin.

However, the typeface is readable and clear enough and my eyes are really not the freshest. Type size does decrease in quoted sections but that's why I have reading glasses. OK...apart from the inner dustjacket blurb which is black on dark green! Don't quite know what they were thinking there.

Yes...I said dustjacket. Really nicely put together with two flaps which allow you to keep the page you're reading marked and also a marker for the appendix of over 50 good quality B/W illustrations.

This is a tidy little number for toting in your jacket pocket. Succinct introduction and pithy little notes to the text. Everything you need really...300 pages in half-an-inch thickness.

I'm a reader on the move and already carry enough weight...so I love it!
