This book comes in a cardboard dust jacket, but then has individual ribbon ties on each edge of the book - top, side and bottom. How frustrating and annoying to have to keep them tied while the book is stored, then untie them in order to browse, peruse or display. This made this book absolutely worthless as a coffee table book.
Other than that, the reproductions of the art are beautiful... so it gets two stars for that.
