Excellent coverage of period chess pieces

Having been looking for historical chess pieces for several years I chanced across this book and wondered why there aren't several others covering this topic. The history of chess pieces is a much under documented topic and the Art of Chess covers the evolution of chess pieces very well. Highly recommended.

Nice book for the coffeetable

Nice photos for a coffetable book. Just make sure you get the hardcover.
