The Jewish World: 100 Treasures of Art and Culture, which is being published by Skirà-Rizzoli in the Fall of 2014, is the first comprehensive catalog featuring the holdings of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life.

Select pages from this lavishly illustrated volume populate an installation in the Auditorium of The Magnes.
