Aw, Shirley, I hope you get to, some day! It really is a different experience to see the original artwork. The amount of fine detail in each piece was amazing.

I'm going on Monday, Nov. 14th! There's a special event that day, with art directors and illustrators called Reading Pictures which will include a tour.

Let me see if I can post the link here:
