So you think some Folio LEs are big?
Clipped from BBC News this morning:
I saw the book in person at the Harry Potter exhibition in British Library. They showed the page with the snowy owl and the details were stunning. With a book that size I don't know where one would store it. The Taschen XXL books are the biggest books I can fit on my shelves, but Kay Nielsen’s A Thousand and One Nights with it's box lies on the bookshelf as it is too big to fit in it.
>3 Raenas: I have the David Hockney SUMO from Taschen, and it dwarfs the XXL editions. It is so big that it needs two people to lift it, and comes with its own designer stand because no shelf can hold it. It is a monster.
>3 Raenas: I saw a SUMO in one of their shops in London. They are gigantic. I have quite a big apartment for one person, but I couldn't find a space for that book. I think they also just shipped a SUMO as they had a delivery driver come in with a sack barrow to transport a package. For me they are definitely too big, but the Leibovitz SUMO looks really nice.
>4 gmacaree: definitely. With a one to one reproduction you could decorate a decent size apartment floor to ceiling.
