The book includes many new photos and new information that has become available since the previous edition. The group photos that show an individual piece in every color in which it was made are especially appealing. Also included are many of the other products made by HLC, including the Mexican decaled lines, contemporary Post86 Fiesta and Laughlin Art China. -Old Stuff, October/November, 2005 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book covers a history of the pottery, including the famous "radioactive red", it shows the four most common backstamps, it describes ways to definitively identify Fiesta (as opposed to some look-alikes), and gives explanations of the dating codes and the various measurements.
As well, the book is chock-full of good photos the various pieces in all their colorful glory. I especially like the section on the Harlequin line, as it seems to be rising in collectibility. The only other quibble I have is with the prices shown, but that's a problem with every reference book out there these days, as the online auctions have thrown everything for a loop. So if you're looking for a good, general reference on Fiesta, this is the one to get.
