Small Wonders: Late Gothic Boxwood Microcarvings from the Low Countries
Small Wonders came right on time (even if it is going to sell out immediately). Published on the occasion of an exhibition that opened today at the Met Cloisters, which will travel to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, this book and the tiny treasures it holds offer up the perfect dose of amazement and escape during a time in which our daily tasks can seem unbearably large. Small Wonders is all about prayer nuts: miniscule boxwood carvings from the late-Gothic period that depict religious scenes and texts. Though the heyday for prayer nuts was nearly 500 years ago, dozens remain in the watchful possession of museums, many of which are included in this remarkable volume.
