Ugly cover, Badly Manufactured,
This review is from: A Path of Northern Lights / Une trainee d'aurores boreales: The Story of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay / L'histoire du relais de la flamme olympique de Vancouver 2010 (Paperback)I just got this book from amazon, and was very disappointed with the cover. It's cut and finish are very poor quality, with little flaps of paper hanging off the edges of the front cover where it was cut poorly. The edges around the cover look worn and white, with the ink wiped off. There is also an ugly crease where the front cover was folded over incorrectly. Not much of a collectors item. It seems like they sacrificed quality in order to get this book out quickly. (It has photos from the opening ceremony near the end)
If I saw this book in a bookstore beforehand, I definitely would not have bought it. The colour depth seems low, leaving the photos looking dull. It seems like most of them were taken at night, or in low-light, making some of them grainy looking.
For a book that is supposed to represent our Olympic moments, it is very poor quality and cheap looking. Extremely disappointed.
(Also, I received another Olympic book, and it looked far better than this one)
