Here are some pictures. It's a wonderful book, well written and craftly illustrated



Yes, a lavish edition for sure, but as much as I've enjoyed Smiler's book, it's not on the same league as "The new religion", and I'd echo this well-founded criticism to be found in the Amazon's reviews page: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-reviews/R38HT73T01Z853/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=1783059680. A criticism so well-founded in fact that Smiler himself felt compelled to reply to (see "comments" below)

Happy to have helped crowdfund and secure a limited edition copy. Haven't read it all yet, but will eventually buy a standard edition. Well done, Smiler!!
