The unveiling of the Thomson Collection is marked by a set of five books co-published by Skylet Publishing and the Art Gallery of Ontario. These publications explore the particular character of Ken Thomson`s taste and his remarkable collection as well as highlighting individual pieces and setting them in their historical contexts.

Medieval Ivories presents the finest among an outstanding range of European objects collected by Ken Thomson. Among these feature two important chasses or casket reliquaries decorated in enamel, a wonderful figure of Saint Christopher, and a great number of ivories.
