    The book is great - visually appealing.

    Taschen's London is a terrific book. Lots of information and well designed. Unfortunately, like most everything I receive from Barnes & Noble lately, the book arrived with dented corners because of poor packaging. It is a shame that more care and effort cannot go into the packaging and shipping process. It still is an interesting read, it just looks ugly. I am not likely to make anymore online purchases from Barnes & Noble.
