    Firstly, you have to understand what exactly a Fotolog is. Unlike other websites Fotolog only allows the (free) user to submit a single photograph per day. In effect, the user creates an online journal or diary.This book takes a peep into the world of the Fotolog. Whether you appreciate the Fotolog concept or not, you can still fully appreciate some of the artwork in this book. If like me you enjoy perusing the Flickr interesting pictures of the day or you're a keen Fotologger already - there will be something for you in this book. There's nothing quite like printed material to view imagery.Print and paper are all in good quality and images each have their web addresses labelled with the odd comment from fellow Fotologgers.It's not instructional and doesn't pretend to be anything other than a book you can simply flick through. And this is where the beauty lies in it's simplicity. Simple imagery which something anybody armed with any digital camera can attain.

    I ordered 23 books, some of the books delivered with dents on the cover,I've to say i didn't try to contact the seller to ask for replacement (they probably would have) as i need the books - sometimes you need certain things to be perfectly delivered from the first time
