To an avid admirer of the art of JW Waterhouse, this little book that could is a grand addition to a collection. The book is small enough to fit in your pocket, purse, or briefcase; perfect to slip out at moments you want to show a friend or coworker an example of that amazing artist.
The most brilliant part of the book is the way that it was made with several close up pictures of small areas of a certain painting, followed by a one or two page reproduction of the painting as a whole. This is a wonderful way for the admirer of Waterhouse's art to notice intricacies of the masterpieces that are not clear to see in Hobson's book. Also, I believe the reproductions in this book are superior to Hobson's. The lines appear crisper and more defined in this version, and the faces seem more expressive because of it.
A definite find, and a grand addition to anyone's collection!! I was not dissapointed in the least by this little book.
