Quick delivery and in fab condition! Perfect little guide book
My order arrived quickly but I found quite a few of the pages were stuck together at the edges (a fault in manufacture, perhaps, or maybe a little water damage). Not perfect, but I've managed to fix it without tearing the pages. For the price, I can't complain though.
