5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating stories and great recipes, February 13, 2013
The author describes some hilarious experiences with a canal restoration "flying squad" of expert fixers on some of Britain's derelict canals. She also shares some great recipes from those days. A really good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book, September 7, 2009
I buy a lot of books on glass, but this is definitely the best I have ever read. I liked it so much I gave my first copy away (to a glass worker) and bought myself another one. The chapters are written by the world's best glass artists (eg Paul Stankard) telling us how they make their glass masterpieces. It was almost enough to inspire me to buy a furnace and get started!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book full of great information, June 15, 2000
This is a lovely book. The pictures are superb and it covers very clearly the history of glass-making in Venice during the late 19th and early 20th century. Major names and companies (Salviati, Seguso, Barovier, Toso, but not Venini) and the main styles of glass are discussed. A must for anyone wanting to know more about the Italian glass of this period. I would have liked to see in index, though. It has the feel of a much more expensive book.
