Review 'A unique tome... beautifully researched.' The Sun 'Startlingly brilliant ... I've rarely read a book so fuelled by sheer enthusiasm. It's all quite delightful, a brilliant idea executed with great charm and unceasing joie de vivre' Daily Mail 'Oldfield's genius is to see that museums have more stuff than they can display, and to persuade curators to show her their buried treasures ... her cabinet of curiosities reveals very engaging personality' Times '[Molly Oldfield] selects 60 of the most interesting and iconic artefacts from museum archives ... and tells their stories in fact, fiction, history and enthusiastic, interesting anecdote' Saga Magazine 'This gorgeous golden-jacketed book is totally brilliant ... It's one of those rare solution presents too, great for anyone of any age' A Little Bird --This text refers to an alternate edition.
