The Good Book


If you haven’t seen the Good Book: Burton’s 2010 catalog. This thing is packed full of amazing design, creativity and photography. The amount of finely crafted detail and attention given to each nook and crannie is amazing. Although they are gone and out fo print. (see below)

Printed copies of the Good Book are history, but if you check your local dealer bribe some kid with one, visit a Burton Flagship Store or continue flipping coins into wells, you might just find one.
