Perfect product

Content is amazing and well curated. It is exactly the material I wanted to see in a book like this. One small ****** is that I would have preferred the book to proceed strictly chronologically, but the interviews interspersed throughout the book put sometimes anachronistic images where they would have been better served later in the book. Production values amazing, very solid feeling book with great heft and binding, a pleasure to read.
