very beautiful March 20, 2011
The book was sold as used, and I was expecting a few marks on the book. The book I received was in NEW condition. There were no markings on the book, the pages were not "dog eared", and the cover pages was still shinny. I used this for a fine arts class. It is a very nice book and has lots of pictures too look at while the professor drones on and on :D
