This review is from: Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Calla Editions) (Hardcover)
Whatever you do, KEEP THIS BOOK AWAY FROM LIQUID - I accidently spilt some water on it, and black die instantly seeped from the cover, staining a lot of its inner pages.
The printing technology did not exist in the last century to properly reproduce many of Clarke's colour illustrations, however his black and white printed illustrations were more faithful to his original work.
That said, the black and white illustrations in this book do not compare to the beautiful quality of his originals, some of which are on display in the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork City, Ireland.

Mr. Mungo says:
Books usually are kept away from liquid and what reproduced art ever matches the quality of the original?
