Loving Hamelman's Bread Book
I just received Hamelman's Bread book in the mail today--bought it from Amazon.
I was immediately impressed with it after pulling it out of the box. The dust cover for starters looks and feels great. I'll be covering this dust jacket (as I do all my books) with plastic--I use the 12x12 inch plastic scrap book protector sheets.
I'm impressed with the content, diagrams, photos and the quality of the paper used for the pages as well--nice texture as well.
Also, I'd like to mention the quality of the spine: it's sewn and looks like it will hold up for a long time unlike many spines that are glued (e.g. Joy of Cooking, Rick Bayless cookbook, etc..)
