Happy Anyone else got the Freax demoscene book?

I know the freax.hu site is not working right - seems to have been not working properly for sometime now.

But, saying that this is an awesome book with 200+ pages of artwork (C64, Amiga, PC, Atari - even the Speccy) from demos where the artwork is just dribbley. The Amiga section is huge

Not that cheap but awesome addition if you like your demos and quite a big book - you could knock someone out it's that heavy

Since it's called "Freax the Art Album" I doubt there's any deep technical information in it.
