Well, you get what you pay for. And given the price/size factor of the Osprey books you'd have to pay a LOT more for HS to get that quality. Quick look at Amazon:

HS = 200 pages for 30
Osprey Medival Armies = 48 pages for 12 (and it's a smaller format!)

So a HS in that quality comes in around 65, well past the money most people will play for a single supplement that needs at least another book to use.

They are very nice. I'm a cartographer by trade... I wish I could make stuff like that. I need to practice more with these new-fangled computer thingies.

I agree - and when I saw that catalogue cover, my response was, "so those aren't horns, but ears!."

Though I still seem to be in the minority who liked the art in the first printing of the TMB (the new stuff is good but I'm not trading in until I can do it for free). The ships in it aren't all great but the Gazelle and the Broadsword are good.

S4 and Brinksey do seem to spend an awful lot of time talking about a game they profess never to play and not to like. I always thought they were latent MgT players. . .

Yes, I do think that Mongoose did go a little crazy with the whole deckplans issue. But, remember folks, it we the fans who asked for more deckplans. And, I yes, I do hate the errors that creep into them plus the redundancy issue. And, they would have been better served if they went the way of realistic deckplans a la Ryan Wolfe/Ki-Ryn Studios.

But, some hicups, notwithstanding, it is still way cooler than some of the newer Traveller art or CGI stuff that is out there in the larger RPG market.

However, I do urge all fans to contribute what they think should be the Traveller look on the Mongoose thread entitled Colin's Inspirational Traveller Art.

I like some of the art in the pocket edition so much (specifically, the new art in the careers section) that I'm tempted to buy it just because.
