Stunningly beautiful artwork in this volume. I knew I loved Vess' work before Drawing Down the Moon was released, but this book is a real treat. It's well put together, from many aspects. It has a lovely full-color hardcover, the pages are heavy and glossy, with transparent overlays for some of the full-page pieces. There's tremendous detail, with the inclusion of his thoughts on inspiration, and reproductions of his pencil drawings and rough drafts for some of the art. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy art.
