The 18 pound art museum

Imagine a museum with unlimited space and budget…  NPR this morning reported on a new book from Phaidon, The Art Museum, which has compiled extensive museum highlights from around the world into one collection – the ultimate museum.  Over 100 people spent a decade researching and tracking down works.  Disparate parts of one altarpiece were virtually reconnected.   Set up like a series of galleries, rather than book chapters, the book strives to put creators and their work into context.
