Beauty entails the ability of a book to enchant the reader, to successfully present the contents, and to appeal to and attract the reader. When the amount of material in a book is vast, it can be a challenging task to manage the content and appearance. The book in itself proves how well this challenge has been met. The photographs are carefully chosen, with a consistent approach, the printing and binding work speaks of excellence and the typography is refined in every detail. Books that are beautiful on the whole result from the work of a whole team of people, which gives them additional harmony and quality.
