Author Notes

Cozy Baker wrote her first book on the subject of kaleidoscopes in 1985. She curated the first major exhibition of scopes in Washington, D.C., and served as consultant for a kaleidoscope show at the Smithsonian Institution. Baker founded The Brewster Society, the first organization for designers, collectors, and lovers of kaleidoscopes. Her premier collection includes over 800 contemporary and antique kaleidoscopes, and she established the world's first kaleidoscope museum in 1997.

Cozy Baker lives in Bethesda, Maryland.
