Jacquetta and J.B.’s Rainbow Journey

This week’s entry in the 100 Objects exhibition is one of Jacquetta’s most interesting publications: Journey Down a Rainbow (1955).  In this account of a visit to New Mexico in 1954, she shared the narration with her new husband J.B. Priestley, who visited Texas.  The couple wanted to examine the impact of technology on society via the surviving prehistoric cultures of New Mexico and the growing consumer society of Texas: the fascinating results make for a highly readable and thought-provoking book.  More detail and pictures via the exhibition link above.
