The book is well illustrated with 434 pictures, but alas only 60 of them are in colour, they vary in size but many are half or full page, the captions unfortunately do not include the dimensions of the work or the medium. The flyleaf of the dust jacket claims the book serves as an oeuvre catalogue to date (1976). The book includes and index and list of illustrations the latter supplying the information lacking in the captions.
The quality or production is good and it is well designed, although the images lack vibrancy, and it is a great shame that more are not in colour (although it must be said that many of the monochromes are that in the original), but the lack of colour is perhaps a reflection of the date of publication.

The homophobic nationalist reviewing here clearly hasn't read the book... what an ugly attitude.
