I am amazed to hear that this book has become so rare. I don't remember where I got my copy, it was a couple of years ago. I am glad I did!

ANOTHER copy is available on Ebay for $25. I'm amazed by how many inexpensive copies are being sold in the past two months.

I just received my copy - I got it through E-bay.  I had checked many times for this title on E-bay - had been out-bid several times.  I was scanning through the 'royalty' section and came across it listed under just 'Olga'.  I had been checking for it by name.  So, if you don't find a title you are looking for by name, just scan and it may show up without the correct title.  I am certainly glad I did, and I got it for much less than any other I had previously bid on.

It really is a fantastic book.  My library has it, but after I read it, I felt I needed to purchase it for my collection.  I found mine off of Ebay too.

I have not found a better topic where to post this, but....

Ian Vorres has passed away


Famous Greek art collector Ian Vorres passed away on Friday, February 27. He was the founder of Vorres Museum, located in Paiania, East Attica, Greece.

Vorres Museum was founded in 1983 in order to highlight Greek Art and Greek culture. It is divided into two parts: the modern Greek art and the folklore museum. Both museums cover around 2,500 years of Greek history.

Vorres graduated from Athens College and obtained a diploma in Economics and Political Science from Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada, as well as higher education diploma in Philosophy and Psychology from the University of Toronto. For a short period of time he worked as a journalist in Canadian newspapers.

In 1967, Vorres was appointed Director of the Greek Pavilion at the Montreal International Fair and was the only Canadian citizen director of a foreign country’s pavilion at the exhibition.

From 1991 to 1998 he served as mayor in the Paiania municipality. In 2001, he received the honorary title of Doctor in Fine Arts from the American College in Greece.
