Lovely Reference Book10/25/12| Jo AnnThis lovely book is a porthole to discovery. It's the type of dictonary that, as you look up a word, you end up reading the whole page (I could read it cover-to-cover). What a delightful way to explore the world from your armchair or desk. The illustrations make me feel as though I'm on a voyage, and a scientist and scolar are narrating as I read. If I was on a deserted island with only one book, this book would be it.
Splendid10/11/11| Natasha HawkeThis book is a pure joy to experience. It's elegant, amusing, beautifully put together, and exceptionally tantalizing.
Beautiful Book10/11/11| Gioconda PadovanI love this book, is amazing to see the details of the illustrations, they're all beautiful. My favorites: the ones about transportation (bicycles, ships, barks, coach, clarence, etc) and architecture details. Love it!
