    What a feast I was happy to find this at the library, having read about the exhibit it s based on, and sad to return it The essays are good but the images are fascinating it s the kind of book that would be worth borrowing just for the pictures To quote Gertrude Stein the pleasure of looking if you like to look is always a pleasure This was a pleasure indeed.

    This is an exhibit catalog of sorts for the Gertrude Stein show that came to the National Portrait Gallery this past winter spring I saw the show, and bought this book, as research for my senior thesis It s a really interesting look at Stein and Toklas domestic life, Stein s work and the art that her work and enduring legacy inspired.
