Reviews - What do customers think about 1000 Lights. 1000 Leuchten. 1000 Luminaires?

Picture Book  Jan 9, 2007
If you just want to see alot of lights with basic information, this is the way to go. Real pretty.
The condensed version  Oct 4, 2006
The Fiells previous effort covered the period 1878 to present in two volumes, each with 1000 lights. Charlotte Fiell is half of the original team. So this edition will be half as satisfying for detail lovers, and twice as good for those who want just the big hits. The text and captions are in English, French, and German. I wished for more complete details in a single language. 1000 Lights provides a great visual experience for design fans.
