This book is beautifully put together and well-printed. It looks at loose drawings of Michaelangelo -- really sheets of sketches, not generally finished work -- and theorizes on the relationship between these sketches and the marginal notes written on the same pieces of paper. In general, it is an interesting idea, and well-researched and presented, but it seems a little thin to hold one's interest over the length of an entire book. More for specialists and academics, I think. It does provide a look at work that you wouldn't see otherwise.
