Beautiful modern looking book

The book showcasing earlier work of Guweiz is assembled well. I like the modern aesthetics throughout the book. Text editing has few hiccups with spacing but overall reads okay.

One of the best artist

I saw this book multiple times on some website and many people talking about it but I only bought it recently on your website, this is one of the best I've read. Everything, from the start of the author journey to the release of this book, is perfect and we learn so much from his experience. That's why I just bought his new book on kickstarter, I hope the quality will be the same!

Amazing artist, breathtakingly beautiful book

Guweiz is one of my art heroes and it was a pleasure to read his book. I learned a lot about him and his art style and it has made me appreciate his work even more. I enjoyed reading about his thought processes and looking at his WIPs; I find myself thinking about his advice as I work on my own pieces nowadays.
