I love this book. I tells me everything I wanted to know about Cozy Baker's favorite artists! However I and many others have a different perspective than Mrs. Baker. A lot of artists and their kaleidoscopes were left out of this book. A lot of my personal favorites are left out as well. And then there are those artists that in some way 'ticked' Mrs. Baker off, who also are not included. Since she is considered 'the expert' and the 'first lady of kaleidoscopes' the stone I am refering to is a tombstone for the artists she just didn't WANT to cover in this book. Please note that some of the artists are even award winning artists from various organizations including her own! It is sad to see such actions happen in such a love filled industry; or is it as love filled as Mrs. Baker claims.
