I'm not going to babble on and on about this book. I'ts an excellent reference material. I only wish it had color schemes.
This book is not only an incredible collection of art, it is also wonderfully explanitory. R. Beer tells the mythos and history behind each set of images in a logical and easy to read format. I only wish that it was in full color (rather than just black and white); however, the author gives full details of how each image is traditionally coloured.
I -highly- recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Tibetan culture.
