This book, by an important UK glass artist that started his glass 'career' in Scotland (or Iowa?), covers the development of Art Glass. In that respect it is superb in selection of artists. It contains a section on the methods and techniques (glassblowing, lampworking, casting, cutting etc.) of glass making that is far superior to anything I have seen to date, without getting to bogged down on detail. (Frank Andrews 2001) Glancing through again in 2013 as I upgrade the biblography, I remain as impressed with the value of this volume on any collectors bookshelf!
