This beautifully illustrated book brings out the full story of M. I. Hummel figurines for the first time. The author traces the artist's life from her earliest childhood, through her school years, her achievement at art school in Munich, and the solemn decision to become a Franciscan Sister. For the avid collector, the heart of this book will be the collection itself, shown completely in color and fully documented.
