This is based on the Viskatov plate series of the early 19th Century. The info on the GNW is very much outdated, but the plates are nice, if inaccurate in many cases.

If you want the most current info on Russian GNW uniforms, then Helion & Co Russia and the great northern war, is the book you want.
