The softcover has scuffs to its front and back covers, which are sunned at the borders, but no prominent stains, no tears, and no fade to the art reproduction (see photo). The front end page has a note from the artist to friends (blocked in the photo but not in the book), followed by a small drawing by the artist, and his initials. The only other writing is an address to the adjacent inside front cover. There are no stamps or other attachments. Other than light sunning to the page borders, the pages are clean throughout the book, with all the art reproductions as new. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages.
