Format: Paperback
I originally purchased this book when it was first published alongside an exhibition in a small London gallery when Midwinter pottery started to pick up in popularity. I was at first impressed with the detail of the history - the author has gone to no small amount of trouble to discover new and interesting facts about the pottery and its chequered history. There are also great comments and personal quotes from many of the designers. Of course, the best bits are the stunning photographs - they are extremely well done, showing the pottery at its best with both "posed" pictures and some great examples of advertsing of the period. A really interesting book for Midwinter collectors and 20th Century design enthusiasts alike.

For collectors this gives good background history on Midwinter, not all patterns are included so not a comprehensive list for use as a collectors tool.

buy 2 copies - one for reference and one for keeps. 15 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are crazy about Midwinter pottery and want to know pretty much all there is to know about it's production processes, the designers and their designs then this is the book for you. If you are interested in the designs of the 1950s and 60's it will also provide a valuable reference tool. There are plenty of colour pictures to help with identification of different patterns whilst out at boot sales in search of treasure (Becoming increasingly rare to find at reasonable prices now). Read the book but leave the china for me.

Excellent Identification Guide! 7 Jan. 2000
By K. C. Goff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful reference volume for the lover of mid 20th Century design, and invaluable for the Midwinter enthusiast! The colour photos are exceptional and the patterns are also explicitly described in chronological order. If you even have a passing interest in 50's-60's design, this would be a wonderful addition to your reference library.

Great gift for the aficionado 27 May 2000
By Debby Wang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good bible for the Midwinter enthusiast. My in-laws have been collecting the Stonehenge Midwinter patterns for years without a reference guide. They'll be thrilled as I was with the chronological history of this company and the pottery they created. Great color photos.
