This book is a supplement to The Art & Characters of NUTCRACKERS published in 2005. It pictures specimens and makers not included in the first book, those since added to the museum, and others on loan from private collectors.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR (The Nutcracker Lady)
The author, Arlene Wagner, became entranced with nutcrackers when she worked with a ballet company. She and her husband began a collection, gathering nutcrackers as they traveled around the world. As their collection grew, the couple met with artisans, and explored remote mountainous regions in pursuit of nutcrackers. They finally amassed a huge collection of nutcrackers. To share their collection, they founded the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, a non-profit foundation.
