Review from previously made Moon book:

“This book is otherworldly, in how perfect it is. It has become my absolute prized possession. When I unwrapped it for the first time, I literally stared at it in shock for about 10 minutes. It was that amazing to me. I knew I was paying for quality, but I’ve never seen craftsmanship like this book.”
