The book consists of 50 essays by a wide range of different scholars, from many different backgrounds and countries. Op Den Kamp begins by describing the origin of the book and how they selected the particular objects to include. She reflects on some particular objects that they chose and why. She also discusses the process of selecting contributors, and some of the many surprising observations some of those contributors made. Op Den Kamp is on Twitter at @claudyday.
