This 3-part project catalogs the complete collection of art edition gifts comissioned by the Norton family from 1988 to 2017. The limited edition artist series were meant to "celebrate the artists, many young, early in their careers and underexposed. To evangelize contemporary art. To have play value. And, perhaps, be kept in work spaces or living rooms, where visitors might encounter them and discover some contemporary art."--from introduction (page 5 of printed book)
