Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A delightful and unique way to imagine riding the tram, touring the Getty, wandering the adjacent gardens, and exploring the museum’s laboratories.”—Stroller Traffic
Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
The new Getty Center is opening up to the public. Located in Los Angeles, it houses the J. Paul Getty Trust, which consists of a museum, five institutes, and a grant program. J. Paul Getty made his fortune selling gasoline, and he invested a lot of it in art, and an art museum. The new home for the Getty Trust is a work of art itself-a very unique one. A visit to the Getty begins with a tram ride up the side of a mountain where the museum is located. The art collection includes paintings from 1330 to 1896; photographs from the invention of the camera; decorative arts; drawings & manuscripts; and sculpture. The illustrations and book design are truly unique and very creative. This is a memorable publication.
