Score # 2

Here's another of the books I got at the second hand book store at a REALLY good price!

This book is what could be classed as a 'coffee table book' and was published in 1986 at which time the cover price was listed at $95 US.  I managed to bring it home for $25 which I thought was a steal.  The inspiration in this book is absolutely astounding, even though I have no intentions of trying to make any of these pieces.  I will have fun reading every word though and drooling over most of the pictures (all in colour, I might add). 

Here's one of the pieces I really like...
