This is a gift for my daughter who is very creative. Children/teen books in the Arts sometimes hold back on the wow factor which is a shame. I am not that artistic myself, but I appreciate the unrestrained nature of a lot of these works. In fact I love it, and would recommend all school libraries purchase a copy. The things that a book like this cannot convey is scale and a 3D perspective. Therefore a visit to the V&A (or other collection) is obviously a better option, but it's nice to have access to so much beauty and talent in a well presented book.

I was looking around and a lot of the other ceramics books I found looked badly presented and were very text heavy. This is the perfect "coffee table" gift as it is full of lovely photography of some pieces from all around the world.

Simply does what it says on the cover - simple clear precise and great to thumb through. Worth getting the others in the series

HASH(0x98a96190) out of 5 stars Pretty amazing book 6 May 2013
By Peter D. Tillman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Picked this up on a whim, and it's pretty amazing. Endless creativity and whimsy. Very cool browsing, if you have any interest in contemporary pottery.

This is apparently a "Best-of" compilation from the publisher's series of pottery-photo books, which you will find advertised nearby -- and which I'll be keeping an eye out for.

Let's see if I can find you some samples.....

OK, publisher's site and samples are now in first comment below -- as Ammie won't allow same in body of review. Well, doh, Ammie's own preview sample is a whole lot better. Lots of photos, maybe half or more of the book? Definitely try before you buy.... Very good stuff, to my eye, but tastes differ.

Happy reading -- and viewing!

HASH(0x98a98f0c) out of 5 stars All the "500" Books are great 11 Jan. 2014

As a visual artist I love these books. A major part of learning about art, making art, and getting ideas for art is in looking at lots OF it. These books are great visual chronicles full of pictures that inspire and demonstrate what is possible in whatever medium they are covering. Eye candy for people who love the arts!

It is smaller than a normal sized coffee table book, but has wonderful pictures. It has lots of diffrent types of ceramics that are interesting to look at, and it would give inspiration to anyone who makes pottery. gave this book as a gift, and even I enjoyed flipping through the book on christmas.

I am an amateur potter and looking for ideas. This book contains some amazing artwork in ceramics which is great to start the creative juices flowing in my brain. I bought the hardback version, but the softback would have been perfectly good also. I am buying the other books in this series.
