New, still in the shrink wrap, never opened. I priced this lower than any other online source. Free Shipping. This is a huge 2010 coffee table picture book with nothing but pics of drummers from the famous to the obscure (including me). Pro concert photographer Jules Folletts travelled extensively to drum shows, drum shops, recording studios, concerts and clubs to document all the drummers she encountered along the way. Excellent photography of drummers in their natural settings. Also features a section of photos by the late Lissa Wales, well known photographer of drummers.
