We like this book. It is 225mm square and has black and white pictures on high quality paper. A feature of its success is the care and attention given to its design by the author..
Featuring real leather on the spine and corners with a gold crest and title on the cover this book is hard to beat if you're looking for real craftsmanship. The binding is done by hand so expect a high price.
