excellent work on all aspects of this notable type of art glass 7 Sept. 2005
By Henry Berry - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The large middle section, pages 136-370, is a catalog of mostly color photographs of Czech glass of the period covered done by the leading, most artistically skilled, glassmakers. This bountiful catalog demonstrates why Czech glass has in the relatively short time since the 1970s when it became widely known throughout Europe and other Western countries one of the most sought-after types of art glass. But the catalog is only the beginning of the varied, extensive content of this coffee-table size work of value to those with a specialized, well-developed interest in the field of glass. Eight introductory essays by experts cover Czech glass from its artistic and historical origins through its worldwide recognition largely from a 1959 exhibition in Moscow and designs for glass works kept at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. Back matter (appendices) include bibliographical annotations of the glass artists; which besides their photographs, includes awards, exhibitions, and references in printed works. The back section after this has facsimiles of all of the artists' signatures. There are also informative sections supplementing the essays preceding the catalog. From aesthetic appreciation of the glass to information on the artists and the industry to crucial technical material such as signatures and more, "Czech Glass" contains everything anyone could be looking for on this subject.
Great for collectors! 29 Aug. 2013

The book is excellent. There is very little and far spread out information about post war Czech glass. The book is the most complete approach I have seen so fat. The pictures are amazing and offer a complete perspective of the development of art glass in the Czech Republic during that time frame.
