Christmas has come early!
My copy arrived this morning and all I can say is... WOW! I've only skimmed the surface so far, there's lots of info as well as tons of art to goggle at so I'll be settling down after work (with a magnifying glass - I love the detail!) for a good long read.
The paper quality is also superb, the publisher has done a great job.
One thing I noticed straight away is that there isn't too much cross-over between Shadowplay and the Masque book. Obviously Shadowplay contains some of the same artwork but if anyone decided not to buy this book because they already have Masque... think again!

Christmas has come early for me as well.....! The book was waiting for me when I arrived home from work and have had a chance to have flick through......it looks fantastic and the quality is superb.

As Mo say's , if people who who have 'The Masque' decided not to get this book as they may have thought it would be straight repetition then do yourself a favour, contact Mark ASAP and order a copy......quick !

Still waiting on mine. Did the people who have received their books order the normal hardback or the limited edition ? Just wondering if one is shipping before the other.

The folios for the prints had to be remade, I think Mark was hoping to ship them before the end of the week.
