Art and Character of Nutcrackers Book


Beyond visions of sugarplum fairies and wooden men with white beards, the nutcrackers featured in THE ART AND CHARACTER OF NUTCRACKERS are elegant, sophisticated, rustic pieces of usable art steeped in history and tradition. Beautifully photographed.

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.
