Great book (I think), pity about the damage
on 30 October 2013
The book itself looks absolutely great - huge, looks beautiful, good choice of examples. I'd probably have given it 5 stars (once I'd finished reading it) if I hadn't been sent not 1 but now 2 faulty copies, the first with a bad cut and dent on the cover edge, the second with about 4 square inch tear on one page. Both of these were inside the shrink wrap, which wasn't damaged (and the packing was fine) and they look like production faults rather than something Amazon did, which reflects pretty badly on the publishers of what's obviously supposed to be a prestigious book. I've just returned the second copy, asking for another replacement. So, if you do order it, make sure to check it carefully for damage once it arrives.
