The Brauer Museum of Art is pleased to present American Railroad China: Image and Experience, a book that studies and celebrates the remarkable railroad china collection of Jay W. Christopher, and that was published to accompany the Brauer Museum of Art's major exhibition, The Christopher Railroad China Collection: The Art of Dining on Rails (on display from December 13, 2008 through March 22, 2009).
