SUMMARY- All interior photographs are black-and-white. You get an interesting cliff notes version of its history and a survey of a lot of the things it was formed into over the centuries.

Shire Publications always includes a reading list and a visitor or museum listing where you can see real examples of the subject matter of the issue. I love that feature of these books and think it's worth the price of admission all by itself!
