POLL DESCRIPTION
Steve Gill, writing in Battlegames magazine, lamented about a beautifully printed book, "an object of great beauty," and expressed his fears:
…as we hurtle toward digital damnation, kindlepads in hand, I wondered if it may be among the last of its kind.
Do you foresee "beautiful" printed game books becoming extinct?
