Tiffany - A fabulous Book to Own Oct 23, 2002
This is truly the most fabulous book on Tiffany's works,including many illustrations of works not previously seen. As a Tiffany book collector, I know that Nuestadt's book may have more lamps illustrated, but none have the incomparable colors and qualities as the images in this book. They are truly magnificent pictures (over 400 color plates)on a black ackground and are of the same quality as Sotheby & Christie's catalog pictures. Tiffany at Auction by Alastair Duncan may be a collectors item, but having seen it, most of the pictures in that book are in black and white and do not begin to compare with this book. While the Sotheby and & Christie catalogs display beautiful pictures, they only show what people choose to sell, unlike this book that shows treasures that I have never before seen in any of the books or catalogs that I have collected.But this book has so much more. Almost every lamp picture has a close up of the actual pattern. As a stained glass worker, these close ups are sufficient for you to reproduce the design. The outstanding and superlative index at the rear contains small thumbnails of each work of art in the book with illuminating information and page number shown for easy access to the item. Actual copies of the Tiffany factory workbooks,similar to Nash's new Tiffany Notebook book, are included in this book. Of course, this book also has the requisite biography of Tiffany. One third of book is biography and windows, second third is lamps, and last third is vases, index and bibliography. You will NOT be disappointed in this book - it's the best that is available as far as I am concerned.
