"This chunky near square deluxe hardback coffee-table type book is a thing of incredible beauty. Both as an object in itself - chock-full of richly coloured beautifully crisp photographs of stunning models - and for what it documents. [...] According to the books subtitle, A History and Complete Illustrated Catalogue, it covers the entire collection, making it not only enchantingly seductive, but fabulously complete and comprehensive. [...] Beautifully produced, an honourable homage to the vast expenditure of skill and passion that the objects it depicts represents." - 'A Question of Scale' blog
