Good, but lack of colour photos,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: William De Morgan Tiles (Paperback)
I suppose i come to this book form a particular viewpoint, that of wanting to look at the tile designs with a view to inspiring stained glass designs. What i really needed was a catalogue of tile designs, and this book isn't that.
This book is understandably a broader view of de Morgan's life and career and as such is very good. It was first published in 1983 and that might account for the fact that most of the illustrations are black and white. Printing technology has moved on and we'd benefit from a new account which makes use of the freer availability of colour printing to bring out the extraordinary colours of the tiles. But good as far as it goes...
