Unfortunately there is some damage to this book. (see photos for condition) The slipcover has a torn spot on the front bottom area but it is still intact and there are some small stains. The binding is partially coming apart and can probably be repaired easily. Vision Publishing card is in mint condition. The pages…wow! No pages are missing and they are all in almost perfect condition. Exquisite photography!
