- As the first Founder's Choice to join Scala's popular Director's Choice series, this stunning book highlights the favourite items of design and culture collected by museum founder Micky Wolfson. Rooted in the greatest century of growth and change humanity has ever known - 1850 to 1950 - the Wolfsonian traces the odyssey from agrarian to urban, colonial empires to Cold War superpowers, the first spike of the Transcontinental Railroad to the advent of television. Offering a unique and personal take on the museum's rich and varied collection of cultural artifacts, this handy book offers both a guide to Wolfsonian highlights and a glimpse into the art of collecting.
