Come to think of it Vanessa; how about a volume 2. I would certainly buy it and recommend it, and your current book, to all interested in beautiful and not so beautiful classics.

The book does not mean to be in depth, and it does cover a surprising amount of vessels both European and American. Chances are good you'll see a "Volume II" in the future.
It's hard to get the facts correct on all of these, but if you are very familiar with one or two classes and find an error it will annoy you. Well within tolerance though. Pleasant, a bit small for a coffee table book.
With a retina display how could I go wrong.
Every image was stretched, making the rigging tall and out of proportion.
The figures in the boats were the giveaway, not looking human at all but clearly stretched.
The type however was in proportion.
