1.0 out of 5 stars Not so comprehensive, 25 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Comprehensively Clarice Cliff: An Atlas of over 2,000 Patterns, Shapes and Backstamps (Hardcover)
I purchased this book believing from the title that it was a "comprehensive" list of Clarice Cliff's designs and shapes. However, I soon realised there were many NOT included. I found on the internet that the Clarice Cliff Collector's Club members have worked out there are over 30 major designs and various shapes missing. The worst omission from the patterns section was the large My Garden range that was her best seller from 1934-1940. But what annoyed me most was that it has over 25 pages of designs that have nothing to do with Clarice Cliff, but from the Wilkinson's factory. Many of these are of printed designs not the hand painted ones she is famous for. Also, because the main author is Australian the book covers obscure designs sold in that part of the world, again nothing to do with Clarice. The book has very little detail about Clarice or her life. I do not recommend it. Instead check out the older cheaper books which concentrate just on Clarice Cliff.

Just an observation - are you related to Leonard Griffin or just good friends?
