The real problem is the quality of reproduction of the illustrations, usually blowups of newpaper small ads and similar, with some contemporary pictures of the the city. Some of these are unreadable and most are unclear. It's not really a problem, but it could have been executed better.
As mentioned elsewhere - the production is not good and, for this, it fell short of being a 4* for me. Some of the newspaper clippings look like they are negatives (white text on a black box) and are completely unreadable. Illustrations are usually better quality.
It's not a book I'd recommend trying to read in a single sitting - but as something to keep by the bed and read in 10 minute bursts it's very interesting.
