It captured my imagination to where I couldn't put it down, from the beautiful photographs of the glass Pirelli, Bimini and Komaromy made, to the rich descriptions of how each of them developed their skills and studios.
I found each story intriguing, and was delighted by the links to videos from the 1930s and 40s of these outstanding glass artists actually making some of their famous pieces.
This would make a fabulous gift for anyone interested in glass figurines.
I am looking forward to the next book in this trilogy with all of the detailed pictures to enable me to identify Pirelli glass.
In these few pages there are enough facts to wet the appetite of any glass enthusiast for more! Being a paperweight collector and researcher I was particularly interested in the Pirelli section and the relationship between Pirelli and the Ysart Brothers.
I can't wait to read more especially as the first of the trilogy will cover Pirelli and I am sure will be compelling reading.
