The spirit of Christmas sparkles on every page of this ode to the ornament. Millions of people have grown up with the delight of the annual unpacking of the family's ornament collection, each one with its special story to tell. "Christmas Ornaments" brings back that feeling of childish wonder - a very special package filled with richly detailed pictures of exquisite glass ornaments - and no one to tell you "don't touch"! The book is also a tribute to one of America's favourite pastimes: collecting in this case, a collection built over the course of many years through flea markets, garage sales, and eBay. The authors' passion and eye for quality comes through on every page, from the evocative photos and illustrations to the lore about how ornaments came to be. A glimmering appreciation of Christmases past, "Christmas Ornaments" deserves a home in every stocking and under every tree.
