Unfortunately, I must add that I also had some trouble with the volumes when they first arrived. 3 sheets in one of the books were ripped and there were some ink splashes on them (it looks like it was a printing error). A second book also had a bit of glue splashed on a few of the pages, so they were glued together about 2cm away from the binding. Amazon quickly replaced them the next day, however one of the books in the new set had a folded corner on one of the photos on the back cover. The fold was not huge, but it bothered me; considering the price of these books and the fact that they will be on display, I wanted them to be perfect. The following day I received a third set, which is free of any problems.Read more ›
It's quite expensive. True. (I was lucky to preorder it at £225) But it is worth every penny. It's the kind of book you'll return to many, many times - like your favourite classic record. Trust me. You want it.
I was wrong. This is massive. I struggled to carry it up three flights of stairs to my flat (43lb!). The scale of the project and the production is second to none. It will be an heirloom…
With a global production of 125k, I suspect that this will disappear quick smart. Highly recommended.
