love the interactivity
As a teacher, I showed this iBook to my students before a museum trip, and in a few minutes time, I projected the book on the classroom's lcd projector. The students were astounded and added greatly to the museum experience. Although it says the iBooks is for upper grades, I showed this to my 5th grade class to great aplumb.
I have been teaching art for several years, and I did not know the lessons in this book. For $2.99, this will greatly enhance any museum experience.
Forget "Mona Lisa"
Perhaps the ebook should be renamed "Restoration Cleaning - what should be done to the Mona Lisa." There is very little information or even artwork of the Mona Lisa. What is in this treatise of expert cleaning are pictures of a lot of art and the possibility of what they might look like if painted to represent current day HDR photoshop techniques.
