This stuff is so pretty and so worth the cover price. There are a few pages with multiple images but it’s a thick 200 page book so it’s not that noticeable.

Minus 1 point for some double spread having the subject lost in the spine. I didn’t like that there were so many pages with multiple small images.

I love Matsuri Hino’s artworks so much that I bought two copies. Well, I got the English edition first because it’s cheap but I recently purchased the Japanese edition off eBay for even cheaper. English edition is hardcover whereas Japanese is softcover. Another major difference is the paper used for the dust jacket. English edition is matte while Japanese edition has a nice sheen to it.

I wish Olympus didn’t set their EXIF data to OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA. I’m too lazy editing them out from this batch.
