4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book for Beginners, 28 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Stained Glass Basics: Techniques, Tools, Projects (Paperback)
I purchased this and several other introductory stained glass guides. This is by far the best of all of them that I purchased. It is very simple to follow, details common pitfalls and mistakes (for the most part though there are still many tricks of the trade that could've been highlighted better -- black backings for foil, how to hang and install completed panels, etc.) and includes a broad variety of up-to-date project styles. The pictures in the book are great and include projects that are intended to help the beginner build his/her skills -- and NOT as a vanity display of the authors' works (like I have seen in other texts). For me, the book tells probably 90% of what I needed to know to do stained glass-- the rest, as I've discovered, you simply have to figure out by talking with others or trial and error. One major plus for me -- this is an inexpensive book that is well worth its cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for beginners and teachers, 10 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Stained Glass Basics: Techniques, Tools, Projects (Paperback)
This books covers both foil and lead glass work. It begins with simple concepts and examples, introduces all the tools for both crafts and then provides many details and tips on techniques, using actual projects to re-enforce the learning. I recommend this book highly for all those wishing to be artisans of stained glass.
