Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, dude! Why don't you plan a big book-burning party for Star Trek Compendium from 1981 - it has lots of nice behind-the-scenes pics in it! How dare they include images that startrekhistory owned/was going to own 20 years later. :-)
It would be interesting to see if the publisher considers releasing he next volume without
the images. They might do well to include some nice artwork--something like what Bjo Trimble did years ago with the Concordance
If they do so, it would be interesting to see if their sales are higher or lower than this first volume.
Probably the overarching observation in all this is that, as I'm sure even the Collector would concede, filmclip restorers now have less incentive to continue to spend their time and resources in what would seem to be simply the thankless task of making the Collector's image-collecting life easier for him.
