While reading this book, I found myself doing what I do at art museums: reading the captions scrupulously and glancing at the pictures. The images are a well-chosen assortment of maps, manuscripts, drawings, photographs, posters, movie stills, etc, but I was more interested in the tiny biographies of artists, factoids about famous artifacts (e.g. the flag-raising at Iwo Jima photograph was not staged), and other little bites in the captions.
