Disappointing... but a nice addition to a collection of books, 28 May 2010
This book is full of black and white pictures which just doesn't make sense as this doesn't make the pictures look any better, just makes this book a waste of time. I bought it because I am very very interested in this period of French history so I would have bought it regardless of any reviews... but if you're buying it for any other reason, you are going to be very disappointing. The pictures that are in colour are nice enough, but not as sharp as you would expect and the colour isn't as strong, but almost dull like it was printed in the 1970s/80s......
For the price of this book it just isn't as rich and as fabulous as it should be..... though this book was disappointing I don't regret buying it as it will look lovely on my bookshelf and will be a nice addition to my already large collection of books.
