Customer Feedback

"I got my book last week. It's beautiful, easily the best Kickstarter book in both design and content that I've been rewarded with. I feel very happy to have been part of bringing this exquisite book to life. Kudos to the incomparable Mr. Russell for creating all those wonderful sketches and to his book designer for putting it together so wonderfully. Great job, gentlemen."
