This is a great gift for the discerning costomer who may have everything jet not enough. Its also a great way to see 20th century art glass, how it is made, where it comes from, etc. Good for students looking at 20th century art forms. very fasinating

5.0 out of 5 stars 20th Century Factory Glass 26 Sep 2000
By Gabriela Herink - Published on Amazon.com
This is the first book that really concentrates on the subject matter. Not only does Lesley give you information on the factory but she also gives wonderful accounts of the different designers and artists. It's not so much a picture book as it is a helpful and informative reference that we need more of. So if your looking to education yourself on the many glass artists, companies, and designers this is one book I would highly recommend.
