Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Silvio Berlusconi's bed to Casanova's memoirs via the Statue of Liberty's nose and an X-ray of Marilyn Monroe's chest, here is a remarkable record of some of the most unexpected and sometimes bizarre possessions that have changed hands in the last year—some costing millions, some only pennies.

Ranging from historical artefacts (such as Marie Antoinette's pearls) to the weirdly iconic (Elvis' medicine cabinet), by turns ingenious, intriguing, and witty, this is a brilliant insight into the culture of our time, packed with extraordinary things to amuse, inspire, or amaze.

Jolyon Fenwick and Marcus Husselby are the founders of 20ltd.com.

Synopsis:
