It is a very good read indeed. Not really suitable for Silence’s request for full colour tho’ (as they’re all in black and white - but Extranjero is right about the great stills and the music section.
There’s a buyitnow one on uk ebay at the mo - but it’s a £35 touch, which is way over the odds. There was another to bid for recently with a start of £18 which is more reasonable (but I don’t think it sold). I saw one a while back which sold for £8, which is very good - I’d have bid myself if I didn’t already have had 2 copies (one of which is now in Tigrero’s hands).
Ahhh - exactly why I prefer it.
Beautifully illustrated indeed. But the text isn’t so bad is it? There are a few typo’s but I think the text reads well - and besides that, they use some great words - it’s where I learnt “crespucular” from. The third book is worth owning. It’s the slimmest (123 numbered pages, as opposed to 173 in vol.2 and 141 in vol.1) - but it’s still a beaut, and always nice to have a set (sorry Yod and Phil - teehee ;).) Mind you Ennioo, don’t get too enamoured by the nudy section - it consists of only 3 or 4 pages of (spaghetti) western related photo and illustrated comics/magazines. (Nice tho’.)
Despite all the mistakes, Weisser’s book was useful to me for a while, but it gets little use now (except for a laugh every now and again to see just how far off the mark the man can be). And the hardback version does get advertised for silly money £80 - £160 sometimes … but £30 would be a fair price (if you felt you had to get it. :P)
