that I ordered from Barnes and Noble the end of January FINALLY arrived in my mailbox yesterday. Can I just say I am not impressed by the shipping company they use? It went from Reno to Carson/Los Angeles, sat there for a few days, then went to Provo (nine miles north of me), to Salt Lake (fifty miles north of me!!), sat there for a couple of days, and finally came to Spanish. It would have been faster and probably better if they'd just shipped it priority mail.
I'm glad I got the book, though. I was expecting a coffee table kind of book- big, and on the thin side. It is just under 10' by 7', and at least two inches thick. There is a massive amount of written information in addition to visuals- but in smaller, very readable essays about the symbol in question. I expect to spend many nights reading this before I go to sleep!
So, if you have any interest in the symbols mankind has used for millemia- I'd highly recommend this book. I just don't recommend B & N's shipper- use the post office if at all possible, or order from Amazon.
