I purchased this book without having had a chance to look at it before hand. I was disappointed in the photography. The close-ups usually had a focus and the rest of the picture was not so clear. Also, most of the photos were up close, too close. I believe that having the opportunity to see a table set from a little bit of a distance is always better than looking at a single setting with the picture taken from an odd angle. I thought the cover was beautiful. I doubt that I would ever want to give this book as a gift or will I personally ever use it. It's a one time through book.
