2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying sticker!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 26, 2018
Lovely looking book, however there was a price sticker on the back and unfortunately it has left a mark on the book, peeling off some of the pattern. I’m annoyed because I ordered 3 of these style books, and the other came with a card around the book with the price on, and I wish this could have been the same for all the books as the sticker has now ruined it.
