The artwork inside is great. I really wanted to scan a ton of pages, but as I tried to open the book enough to put it on the scanner I could see that the spine was pretty frail. I managed to scan two pages, but as you can see, I only managed to get 3/4 of the page, but this will give you an idea of how wonderful the drawings are throughout the book.
