Some Reader Reviews:
The book is unbelievable and to be honest it made me feel like i have never learnt anything. I was expecting a few pages of your latest designs but what is there is the work of a lifetime. At least for me it is hard to imagine how you could draw so many different designs. Of course you have all my admiration for what I saw through those beautiful plates. Your designs demand for a lot of attention and concentration. – Simone Dainelli, Florence, Italy
