Format: Paperback
I really wanted a book on the studio pottery for the period before the coverage of this book, as in Tinworth, Mark V Marshall and the Martin Brothers, but that is not to denigrate the quality of this book.
The giants like Leech, Cardew,Coper and Rie are all adequately represented but any studio potter of any significance since the inter-war years has an example here.
A reliable text with close to nine hundred illustrations a good selection of potters marks all go to make the definitive work on studio pottery.

HASH(0x9609ea34) out of 5 stars Its a Catalog 15 Oct. 2011
By Bob Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a beautiful catalog of Modern British ceramics in the Victoria and Albert Museum collection. It traces the philosophical and physical trends of British pottery this past century. It contains beautiful color and b&w pictures of Britain's best potters. This is not a how to book, but a great reference catalog. I suggest, for those that want to save money, look to buy a used copy. It's a nice addition to a reference library.
