Marco's Comments:
Impressive graphic design for a book about probably the craziest escape artist ever. The escapes are crazy, although with not many variations (buried alive, straitjacket escape upside down) but I found particularly interesting the "tricks" actually used to prepare the escape and how to manage the snakes, spiders, coffins. A very interesting read.
