Publisher Comments:

All it takes is a shake of the wrist to make the flakes  fall on Santas sleigh, Elviss hips, or the Statue of Libertys torch—creating a miniature world in each snow globe. From the ornate to the political, from childrens characters to American cities and personalities, these colorful images will propel collectors back to their curio cabinets to watch a dazzling display and set the rest of us out on a lovely nostalgic trip. Each picture comes with a description that gives the history of the piece—going back to the time when snow globes werent just tourist souvenirs but depictions of the most romantic sites on earth. Find out where they were first created, which companies specialized in making them, and why theyre so irresistible.

from where I first heard about this book and as was obvious after reading the comments of the editor I felt an urge to have a look on "the best book ever made".
And I was not surprised after reading it.
Gone to the collection of my all time favorite books.
Cheers!

P.S. I have even gifted one of my university professors a copy of this book during my last visit to my grad college.
