2.0 out of 5 stars Signs of wear
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 27, 2020
Firstly I was surprised by a quick delivery and the book itself is amazing (the content and the photos/pictures). It supposed to be a Christmas present for my daughter, who loves reading and she soaks in every information about the space.
Unfortunately only two stars for the signs of wear. It supposed to be a new book. I am going to contact Amazon and will leave another review afterwards.
