NEW BOOK: DANCING ON RAINBOWS

While looking for other things I came across a short book published in December that I hadn't seen yet. Is anyone familiar with this? Copies are available on eBay, Amazon and elsewhere. Here's the product description from Barnes & Noble. -Editor

Overview
Coin collectors have collected toned coins for years, but the popularity of rainbow-toned coins is a relatively recent phenomenon. This book is a carefully curated sampling of some of the finest rainbow-toned coins that have come on the market in recent years.

Glowing neon colors; "Lucky Charms" colors; peacock colors; pastel colors; thick, "heavy" colors; banded rainbow colors; crescent-shaped, double crescent-shaped and arch-shaped colors and more . . . All are gathered together here for your enjoyment. While these coins are each one-of-a-kind due to their unique toning, what they do have in common, with only a few exceptions, is that they are all either rainbow-toned or "monster"-toned U.S. coins. These naturally toned coins are all works of art—nature's art.
