Great for Marvel Fans!
This book has it all!
From the creation of Marvel to where it is now; this book covers everything. It has a fantastic design and there is a comfortable mix between text and pictures. The 'collectables' are fantastic and this really should be part of any respectable Marvels fan's collection!
In response to the binding of the book; I personally think that there is no problem with it. I purchased my 'vault' in America, and it survived the plane journey and the 2 years of which I've had it. It's like with all things, it will stay in good condition if you treat it well!
