    Amazing artwork

    The photography in this iBook is gorgeous and I really have a sense of seeing an exhibition as I view the iBook.
    The video interview and audio files, especially when looking at the "plate sculptures" really helped me to understand what I was looking at and appreciate the artwork more than I would have otherwise.
    A lot of samples either leave me feeling like I've seen enough or not caring if I see any more, but this one made me want to buy the book, and I wasn't disappointed when I viewed the whole thing!
    I will definitely be following the work of Maslen and Mehra in the future, which they make easy to do with the links at the end of the book.
