Gosh, I just love miniatures!Ideally, the reader would read this book shortly after viewing the exhibit and shortly before returning to the exhibit. I had the pleasure of seeing these rooms when I visited the Art Institute three years ago, but while I remembered the rooms and had read all accompanying material, I either didn’t know or remember much of the information in this book. One woman designed all 68 miniature rooms, all shown in this book. She created this exhibit between 1934 and 1940. They’re of European (and 1 Asian) and American design, covering periods from the 16th to early/mid 20th century.I was afraid that the photos wouldn’t capture the magic I felt when I viewed the rooms first hand.It’s true that in the book’s photos the reader can’t see size and all different ways to view as you can when seeing them in person, but I immensely enjoyed seeing them again, and I could remember the size of the rooms and their contents so reading this was a great experience.
