Review: The World Encyclopedia of Flags

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

Not really encyclopedic, this lovely book is beautifully designed but unevenly written, frequently inaccurate, and often amusingly self-contradictory. Not taken too seriously, it's a terrific coffee table book for anyone who likes flags, or just bright colors. Read full review
