Sometimes you see an acquisition that stops you in your tracks.

The book is made of glass, and housed in a soft, protective case. It is called "they did not know that the books were already in our head," by Becky Slemmens.
I can say nothing more than to quote the artist's statement: "I created a book of glass pages. I chose to make a book that cannot be burned and demands respect in handling. The material also references Kristallnacht, "the night of broken glass," occurring on September 9-10, 1938.
