It told the story of a fictitious 19th-century French painter, so nearly all of its 223 pages were filled with lovely art reproductions just begging to be pored over and admired. There was only one problem, and it was a big one: the binding method chosen meant I could barely pry the book open without fear of breaking it! As beautifully printed as it was, its makers had decided to go with perfect binding.
