Our customer reviews

This is the cheap, paperback version of Ryan's album. Unfortunately, without all those many great pictures, it cannot be that good. We get only a few illustrations, and some pages of photos. Moreover, it is a topic you cannot really put together in such a short book. So, I am not really convinced. It is a book they should not have published in this version.show more
