Different Expectations 28 Aug. 2014
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was beautiful produced - with plentiful illustration and printed on high quality paper. However, the content of the book disappointed my expectations. Many of the essays were histories centered around a thing, rather than illuminated *through* things. I enjoyed most the essays on bubbles and Harvard's glass flowers.
