Actually, its not a bad reference since there is very little right now and the picture quality is pretty good. It puts everything in one place for collectors and even has color pictures of all the new style Russian Federation Orders. The quality of the pictures is pretty good since the posters are a good size (the pictures of the medals are almost full-size). Finally, the price is pretty reasonable in the $30 range for a limited/numbered edition considering many of the books coming out are $120 or more.

Frank,

Sorry to hear about this sad state of affairs. I guess some people will do anything for the mighty dollar. I'm sure the word will get around and the truth will be known.

I 'm sorry to hear as well. However, I believe you did admit that there is no copyright on the pictures and these were not your personal pictures that you took of the medals. That being the case, they are indeed in the public domain (as is just about everything on wikipedia) and anyone can use them for any purpose. Indeed using them to create a series of posters for collectors is a fair and legitimate use of them. Now, you may be bummed out that he thought of it before you did but that isn't a reason to accuse him of things. I'd suggest you use your material to write the book on Russian Federation ODM and perhaps you can get DBM Press to publish it for you.

I think you might have misunderstood what this is. As I stated in my first post - this is just a series of six color posters. There is no text (other than titles of the medals) and they just show the front of the Russian ODM, which is why I suggested you write the book. Might want to buy a copy and check it out before you get too critical of it. As far as I'm concerned its a nice basic identification guide on official Russian Federation Medals since nothing similar exits in printed form.
