The length of the pages does not support the weight of the book and the spine is cracking and losing pages already. Poor design for such a great collection of pictures. So far I have loved every aspect of this book. This is a huge book. With page after of beautiful reproductions of Muybridge’s motion studies, it gives an exhaustive look at this most famous aspect of his career.

The cover indicates as much. I pleased to find that they left things alone.
