There's not much to say: well made, complete, rich of picture never issued and rich of information.
The history of Master Massimo Osti is well told and I recognize lot of his items from the early age, also it is possible to see too some of the lines Mr. Osti Studio design in the last years, that, in my humble opinion, stye don't reflect at all the research and the importance of early age.
For example there's a series of knitwear "made in china" that I don't think was part of the heritage of Mr. Osti, but made only for commercial purpose and I think that, in this book, suggesting they was "an innovative project" is a mistake, as is clearly easy to see that there's not too much of Mr. Osti hand in this project.
Definitely, I think this book worth the price, and I'm happy to having add to my collection and tribute to Mr. Osti work.
It's an amazing document of Massimo Osti's work and creations.
Truly inspiring piece of history to anyone who can appreciate innovative use of materials in clothing.
It shows the clothing he has designed was truly engineered in a way no one had looked upon clothing before.
With it's 400+ pages full of great pictures and information it's really great value for money.
