About this product
- Description<b>Why do people collect things? This ode to museums mighty and minuscule will draw curious viewers of all ages and is worthy of collection itself.</b> What is a museum? Why would anyone amass shells, words, clocks, teeth, trains, disaurs, mummies . . . or two-headed sheep? Find out where the word museum comes from and what unusual items (unicorn horns? mermaids?) some early museums placed on view. Jan Mark s humorous and conversational insights take readers through museums multifaceted history, while Richard Holland s eye-catching mixed-media illustrations lend their own quirky flair. With vivid examples from all around the world, this wonderful book puts museums and the many artifacts lovingly stored there on display in a whole new light.
