Text book read
on 20 November 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
For a text book, this book it pretty nice. I bought it for a ceramics class I was taking at art school. I didn't read all of it during that course but it is one of the few text books that I kept so that I could finish reading later. The hard cover is nice and came in great condition. If you're interested in ceramics it is a pretty easy and educational read.

High quality pictures and excellent techniques
on 22 November 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
This was the required textbook for an intro to ceramics course. I loved to look at the beautiful pictures. There were many techniques listed in a step-by-step manner. We used it in class. I've seen ones with a spiral binding that would make that much easier. Overall, a fantastic purchase.
