Among my favorites are the boy's report card detailing his teacher's warning that his anti-social behavior seems deliberately devious and malicious, prompting Morticia to proudly pat him on the head. Another shows the arrival of two animal carrier cages at the mansion, with Morticia exclaiming, "The children are back from camp, dear."
This book appreciates Addams's work, and made me laugh and think. That is a home run.
All of the Addams family drawings are here, including rough sketches that were never released. Each character has a bio, written by Charles. It's all very informative and gives great insight on the characters.
The only thing I don't like about the book, and it's nit-picky, I know: the font they chose for the captions of the drawings, headers and the book title is ridiculously ugly. It cheapens the feel of the book and, especially on the drawings, is difficult to read. Something simpler would have been pleasing and easier on the eyes. It reminds me of those weird fonts that you'd see on a flyer for a Halloween party - a bit tacky.
I bought my book new though the "other sellers" option in Amazon (from a local shop in NY listed under the amazon seller name bookcultureny) and their price, brand new, was half the price as normal Amazon. The book arrived before I even had time to think about where it was and the process was painless. Awesome!
So on the positive side this book is exceptionally high quality printing. The pages are good heavy stock and the printing is exceptional. Even the dust jacket is expertly executed though the font chosen for the title is a bit cheesy.
The negative comes because I just expected there to be more of it. This isn't a cheap book by any means and I was done with it in the span of 30 minutes or so. Of the 221 pages in this book about 20 of them are printed material, such as the background for each character or the book's introduction, and the rest are full-page reprints of the original comics. Maybe this is all there actually *IS* to be printed but it felt like there had to be more. I honestly don't know if there *IS* more or not but it just doesn't feel like everything.
In summary, this is a great book in many ways but it leaves me wanting something else. More back-story, more comics, more anything. It's on the bloody edge of being worth what I paid for it.
