    I just received both books yesterday, what have now been referred to as my shameless "pitcher plant porn," considering that I was up well after midnight flipping through them. The books are indeed beautiful and far more readable than the previous tweedy, pith-helmet laden "scholarly" texts, most now long-out-of-print and often running hundreds of dollars. Strangely enough, I've seen both titles at California vendors for weeks, though it took over six to get them shipped from the UK . . .

    Holy Crap!~!

    I had to get a bib so the drool would not make my pages stick together.

    Forgot to post this.

    Does anyone else have Volume #1 that the binding upside down? Or do I have a very rare error printing? LOL

    My copies finally arrived today. It took just over seven weeks. I want to say it was worth the wait, but I wish they had given people that made advance orders the option to make an additional payment for air shipment. That's with hindsight, of course.

    That said, the books are beautiful! A massive amount of text and loads of beautiful images. Can't wait to dig in tonight...

    (BTW, for those of you that are within a reasonable distance, Stewart McPherson and Barry Rice are joining Peter D'Amato at California Carnivores August 23rd.)
