A friend of mine (a LF photographer) has a copy of the Antartica book. I spent some time at Christmas looking through it. It is a phenomenal artistic accomplishment, irrespective of size. It is BOTH big and good. The photos are excellent and the quality of the reproduction is better than any book I have seen. Almost like having a portfolio, not a book.

Actually, it is so magnificent that it is not clear what do with it. Can't hang it. Too delicate/valuable to leave on the coffee table.

good comment michael, i too have been involved in design and book production for many years and find that the kind of obstanate boasting which you quote (and crops up on this site from time to time) usually comes from people with only a little experience, real experience teaches humility.
