Well I'm confused as to why they did include the subpar picture content then. It seems to be more of a distraction than actual value added. Didn't they think it would be a value added to the product? Didn't they push the inclusion of these pictures in their marketing? And is that really the defense--that they won't make all that much money?
Except that Cushman is not publishing the book or promoting it for it's subpar picture content but on the years he spent writing the text and gathering the information to write such a book. No matter what you think Cushman dis a great job in documenting the show and it is, in my opinion, the best book written on the subject. And it's not likely that he or the publishers will make much if anything off the set. There is a very small and limited market this kind of book would even appeal to. If they are able to sell 10,000 copies it will be a miracle.
