32-page catalogue for one of the Smithsonian's traveling exhibitions. The Smithsonian, encyclopedic as ever, collected 180 pieces of jewelry for this show, much of it from the artists themselves, who used everything from cowbone to handmade paper to epoxy resin to metals of every description as materials and a stunning array of techniques to achieve these unique pieces. Most are shown in color, and none on live models, which shows where the Smithsonian was coming from at the time. Fine in stiff wraps as issued with light wear to corners.
