"Colorful Illustrations 93°C" - Please DO NOT buy this book!

Seriously, this is fucked. I got this email from the Little Chimp Society that posts illustration news, works of illustration, etc (which I contribute to) about this book which has plagerized LCS's entire library of artists work and interviews, possibly including me (haven't seen the book). 

Along with charging $100 for the book, every image in it has been stolen from the community website and the websites of the illustrators featured. The worst part is all the images are included on a CD in the back. This seems to give the impression that all the featured images are copyright free which is certainly not the case. This book in no way references the LCS is anyway.

Please read below and pass this on to make sure no one supports this piece of shit by purchasing it.

Hi, I noticed you blogged about Colorful Illustrations 93°C. I just posted a 3-part write-up examining copyright issues in the creative community using this issue of piracy as the core of the piece. Please check it out and lets continue the discussion:
