|Personalized letter from the PR director. Notice the nice footer of Bean Boots|
|Bubble wrapped, but you can still see how awesome this book looks.|
|The cover is canvas. It feels very good in hand.|
|Foreword (by Leon Gorman, current Chairman of the Board of LL Bean) - nice pages and pictures, easy to read print|

|Yep, it talks about True Prep|
|"Drink Hearty, and remember the place you got this cup - L.L. Bean"|
The history is fascinating. Like I said I'm only halfway through the first chapter, but the personal history of LL combined with the history of the products give good insight into one of the coolest and most influential companies in American history. I'll be posting more in-depth reviews throughout this week and the following weeks, with focuses on content, book quality, and entertainment.
As of now, I can highly recommend this book. Available from LL Bean here.
