A good book for illustrating the subject, but lacks a deeper research and info about designers, techniques used for decoration etcetera.

Publisher info:

"Swankyswigs" were introduced by Kraft Foods in 1933. These fun and colorfully decorated glass tumblers held Kraft's cheese products. They were an immediate sales success and their popularity never ebbed. Today they are an avidly sought collectible. This new book chronicles the history of Swankyswigs and offers 230 color illustrations of nearly every style produced, from flowers to sailboats. Also included are several look-alikes . Descriptions and variation lists, and captions with vital information and the current value of the Swankyswigs in today's market make this an important book for the glass collectors library as well as a delight to the eye.
