Both the photography and reproduction of it is superb. The book production is of the highest standards with every embellishment applied with taste. You just don't get many books of this stature now. Its large-310x300mm. Hard cover-case bound. The loose cover isn't mundanely matt laminated but printed on high quality paper and over sized and folded in at the top and bottom to give the book a substantial feel. The hard cover is dark brown cloth with d embossing of the title set large across the top-very tasteful and bold. I bought my copy at the Fashion Exhibition in London when it was launched. I took a group of photo students from a state secondary school where i set up a photography GCSE course. They loved both the exhibition and the book!
