1) the reproductions are not very good. Yes, the prints are just black and white, and how hard should that be to reproduce, but the paper is really cheap, and the black on it is very flat and the black not as black as it should be. (The ones on the shiny cover look fabulous.)
2) While I didn't expect any explanatory text, I did want to know the sizes of the prints. Some of them looked like they were very small, and blown up way bigger than the original, based on what the marks look like, and some could have been much larger and vastly reduced, and it really seems like that's information that could easily have been put on each page, along with the artist and title of the work.
3) There didn't seem to be much of a criteria for selection. Some artists were represented by only one print, and others by over a dozen, and it seemed to be more like what they had available to use rather than any kind of standard. One artist was represented by a large numbers of very simple faces (that seemed to me like were really small prints blown up), where they're all pretty much doing the same thing, which looked to me like "filling up the pages", and then there were other artists with only one or two that I would very much have liked to seen more of. I could understand a selection process of representing each artist by three or four prints, or by offering a selection of prints representative of an artist's work where the more print-prolific artists had more prints than the less print-prolific artists, but it seemed more like "Oh, we have available a lot from this guy, so we'll put them all in, even though they're not very good, and we only have a few available for this guy...." I have no idea whether this is true or not, but that's what it seems like.
On the other hand, there is some stunning work in this book, and if you're interesting in woodblock prints, there is plenty to study here.
