An excellent book but what about the small print used?

Thanks Kwame, for the compliment. The small print was a compromise; to give the texts much more generous space, we would have had to cut out several images from the book. In deciding to keep both, something had to give, which is the initial design we had for the text pages. Given the incredible amount of work that went into sourcing the images, we had to present them in the best possible format, even if came at the expense of the, I concede, rather unglamorous text pages
