Received mine yesterday - it is BIG and obviously a labor of love!  I was very impressed with overall breadth - this is quite a bit larger than the other publications on flats that I have generally seen in the past. 

For me personally it definitely struck a chord as I am very interested in keeping/documenting a bit of the history of Companies / Editors / Designers before that knowledge is lost.  This deliveries a bit in all of these areas as well as a large set of examples of painted figures - if this is your time period then it is a feast for the eyes.

I read an English translation a week ago - prior to the publications arrival - I look forward into a deep dive into this in the coming week.

Highly recommended and a bargain compared to other publications in the genre.

Yes, a good reference book.  But unfortunately the pictures do not give the photo quality again.  This is a shame because many collectors had hoped for it.
best regards

Received my copy at the weekend a super book with lots of great pictures and examples of different painters interpretations of the same figure.
 Lots of work and research to produce this book congratulations to those involved.
