Price: $32.00

Publisher: MQ: 2006

Seller ID: 010533

The pages are filled with diverse images from musical legends to landscapes, to self portraits. The beauty of the images lies not in their execution necessarily, but rather the stories behind them. Some commentary describes the significance of the art, while other images do not need any editorial, letting the art or the dialogue carry it. review >>> A wonderfu... View more info
