A spectacular design book which is not often seen.

Very clean, nicely kept magazine marred only by a small abrasion to outer front edge, a small chip to side of one page (not affecting text) and creasing to the same page which has been pressed flat in the book press by me.

To give you an idea of the tone the teaser reads, "He behaved rather like Moses with a quart of skimmed milk and an aggressive gall bladder ...."
