For the past 99 years, the Royal Ontario Museum has introduced its visitors to objects from all corners of the globe. In celebration of the Museum’s centennial, 21 Canadian writers, painters, filmmakers — even an astronaut — share their personal connections with a unique object from the Museum’s collection in this extraordinary volume. Read best-selling author and anthropologist Wade Davis’s insights about the Hudson Strait Kayak, the presence of the Shiva Nataraja in award-winning filmmaker Deepa Mehta’s household, or astronaut Chris Hadfield’s thoughts on a very rare type of meteorite, the largest of its kind ever found in Canada, and more. Combining curatorial expertise and intimate perspectives, this writing is complemented by stunning contemporary photography and striking documentary shots, emphasizing the personal experience within these natural and cultural masterpieces. The full list of contributors includes Anita Rau Badami, Robert Bateman, Joseph Boyden, Dionne Brand, Austin Clark, Wayson Choy, Wade Davis, Sheree Fitch, Charlotte Gray, Chris Hadfield, Lawrence Hill, Alex Hutchinson, Ross King, David Macfarlane, Joe MacInnis, Margaret MacMillan, Linden McIntyre, Deepa Mehta, Lynda Reeves, Guy Vanderhaegue, and Aritha van Herk.
