I've had mine for a few day now. Its an absolute masterpiece. Beth fucking astounds me, as she lay-ed all this out so painstakingly beautiful for us. I am almost most appreciative to her, above all others. But collectively its an awe inspiring collaboration of so much for serious talent. I learned that I am still much predictable in my taste. I did the stereotypical quick glance through after careful removal of jacket. I feel in love with the same colorfully vivid and humorously dark prints of three artists again and again, my favorites of those: the cue balls by Lauren Goldberg, the word puzzles by Regis Hertrich, or one that took me by suprise as a favorite: Beth Hommel's old time photo and Polaroid collection. (I really heart that one for reasons I haven't tried to sort out yet...). But thats just me, proving I'm predictable in my taste. The whole thing is just yummy delicious art for days. Everything Neil touches is gold. It always has been. I've had him in my life longer than Amanda. I'm glad she was golden before she met him. But the combination of the two is a creative force I anticipate to be one hell of a genius tornado. Especially with the talent that seems to surround them as friends and family. Anywho. It took forever, but my opinion. Bloody well worth the wait! I enjoy it, thats really all that matters,it made me smile to get it. I have enjoyed pouring through it in little sections. I have contacted the friends who really hate Amanda's music but love her art (and I kinda understand their thoughts there, but I'm pretty amazed by both) and I have been toting the book over for others to pour over in amazement. My little young one of the commune house, an acoustic guitar maker by trade, had never heard of her, but in the last week, has become quite the closest-ed follower amongst his metal head friends. It touches people differently too. Even myself. I HATE the picture of her hanging and the boy in the swing. Abhor it. I like the fact that it is a stunning enough image to arouse that emotion in me. It is amazing to watch the looks of horror, fascination, where's (for the little details), smiling, giggling, sheer disgust, appreciation, lust, etc go over peoples faces as they read through and look at that book. It is an incredible piece. Congratulations and many thanks to everyone who had a hand in it.
