At first the handwritten style was a bit difficult for me to read, but once I was able to bite into the first chapter, it was easy to see why this came so highly recommended. The language with which the author uses is friendly and clear, and the sketches are a wonderful supplement to the passages. I now go to my classes brimming with ideas and a much better understanding of what I am learning.
My only complaint is that the author doesn't know the difference between "effect" and "affect" or "it's" and "its." Being entirely too grammar oriented, it drove me nuts... until I learned to read with a pen in hand to correct his errors myself.
Definitely a good investment if you are even slightly curious about the art!
Thank you thank you thank you Edward T. Schmid for taking the time to handwrite two bibles on Glassworking.
Well written, enlightening, educational and a reference guide you can use for years. I highly recommend this book if you are into glass.
