This is a nice book showing a vaiety of buildings using old shipping containers.
I'm a little bit disappointed in the presentation. Some of the photos are clearly out of focus, making it a little bit annoying to flip from page to page seeing various quality photos. I've no idea why the photos were not re-taken in focus. It makes the book feel a bit amateur in parts.
Also. The text is split into two separate blocks, one in English and the other in Spanish. This in itself is not a problem. Actually I can speak spanish so it's no big deal at all. But what is odd is that the English text seems to have been put through a Spanish-English online translator, or has been written by someone whose language is not English. There are some quite odd turns of phrase that would never get past an English-speaking editor. At the end of the day I really bought the book for the photos rather than the text so it's no big deal. But combined with some less than ideal photos it does make the book feel a little bit sloppy.
Having said that: If you want some inspiring photos to look at from the container world, you will enjoy this book. It's paperback, a nice size and fairly interesting. It just could have done with a little bit better editing.
