This might have worked better for me in English. (I read the German translation). I certainly wonder several places what terms were used in the original. Also most of the pictures are from the V&A meaning that even in the non-British selections the choice of items was not what I would have expected. The British emphasis would probably not have been as blatant in English.

Especially in the biography pages, there should have been more illustrations. Over all the choice seemed to be based on chance (or available pictures?) rather than on a plan of what needed to be shown. ( )
