It is a lovely book and a great followup to a wonderful exhibition that I saw at the Nelson Museum of Art in Kansas City recently. There were so many items in the exhibition that it was almost too much to absorb. And, since I was just visiting in town for a few days, I couldn't spend more time with the show. So, I wanted to get the catalog so that I could study all of the items more closely. The catalog is beautifully laid out and a joy to look through.

My wife and I recently took a trip to Kansas City. One of our stops was to the Nelson Atkins Museum. The exibit was more than we had expected!The Nelson is one of the best kept secrets of the midwest. Unfortunately...we only had a limited amount of time that we could spend at the exhibit. The book gives you all the background information on the various objects. Hats off to those who put the exhibit and the book together!
