Lovely quality book, and great informative text, but for my needs there were not enough images. I would have liked images of every house covered in the book, rather than just text, which is the case for the majority of houses covered - althought the text is very informative there is nothing like seeing an image of the property, especially if you are considering making a trip. You could of course supplement the book by googlin, but that defeats the object of having bought the book i feel! Book is bit smaller than a4 and is about 3/4 inch thick. Nice medium weight matt cover and a satin finish inside.
