This is pictorial awesomeness. As a child, it became a layout for figurines, and without words it leaves much to the imagination. A beautiful, inspiring book. So many nuances can be found, some hidden images, others are fully visible and could be overlooked if one is not familiar with the reference (both historical and playful). I recently purchased the entire collection of his ventures, and a couple of his other works. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
