I just got* Adam Hughes' art book Cover Run. I would recommend it, except there is probably no need, since it's a monster hit already and everybody is talking about it.
I discovered that I really like when there's a bit of text on every other page in an art book. Otherwise, no matter how much I like the art, I'm just done with it very quickly, and that's a pity. Of course the text should have interest, but it does not have to be Shakespeare, just good enough. Some thoughts and anecdotes.
*It took two weeks to arrive since shipping, even within the UK! And they had predicted so too. I am wondering if the company told a fib on Amazon when they said "ships from the UK", and they really had to get it home from the US first? Does anybody know if two weeks in the post is reasonably expected?
PS: I'm looking forward to future super-tablets for e-artbooks. I'm enjoying everything else more in digital, so why not. For example, the contrast and color range is bigger with screens than print. (At least as goes for blue and green, if compared to traditional cyan-magenta-yellow-black printing.)
