Thank you, Patrick, for this and the other information, opinions, and questions you've written here.

I recently received my copy of The Game of Saturn. I'm currently going through Sofia Di Vincenzo's book and was wondering how they compared, so your quick review here is very canny. (Needless to say I knew Adams' book would be far more comprehensive and larger in its scope before purchasing it.)

Having received the volume, I can say that I'm utterly thrilled with the quality of the images and paper. I'm very excited to start reading it!
