OK, plan and simple: I am a visual/graphic arts junky. Rex Ray is pure eye candy when I need visual stimulation. This book is all art, no text, all I need when that's all I need. I gotta have my daily dose of viz-stim. Hey - that's what the internet is really for isn't it? But sometimes I gotta have it for my very own. ( )
