Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning book I saw the exhibit in November and was very moved and impressed. Unfortunately, purchasing the book in NYC and carrying it on a cross country flight wasn't possible. I went online and had the book delivered, and I was not disappointed. Gorgeous photos, scholarly commentary, and references for additional research. Highly recommend for those interested in Jerusalem and it's history.
