Edition: Vol. 93, Nos. 2,3,4

Gorgeous slick magazine that's oddly not seen that often. Glorious color photography prevails throughout and articles focus on the art itself rather than the how-to. Among the many topics are these: stained glass conservation, the architectural glass of Elizabeth Devereaux, contemporary Canadian architectural glass, the work of Leslie Perlis, Prairie stained glass, glass spheres and columns, Kolo Moser windows, the marriage of metal sculpture and leaded glass, and much more. Magazines are clean and tightly bound with just a small bit of wear to front corners of the green one (winter). View more info

Price: $24.00

Publisher: Pittsburgh, Pennsylania, Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company: 1934

Seller ID: 2794

Condition: Very good condition


Nice oversized booklet about glass tile walls for bathrooms and kitchens. The top section of the cover is silver with white printing, so it's a bit hard to see the printing, but it's there and readable. Some of the ideas inside are amazingly ahead of their time, especially the baths with extra built-in storage. 1934 looked pretty good! The Carrara glass provided a nice backdrop too, especially since every page is in full color. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11-1/2" with 16 pages. View more info

Handsome art catalog designed to showcase the intricate and beautiful glass works made by the artist Chihuly and held as the George T. Stroemple Collection.

These small architectural books are gems. Each one selects a single aspect of Wright's works. This one is for glass, another I've seen (bad condition) was about fireplaces. The book is not a true miniature, but it measures just 5-1/4" square with 57 pages and many gorgeous color photographs. Despite it's size, the text is not superficial. There is a lot of solid information here. Book is also clean and without names or writing. It also has no tears or chips and is protected by a brand new mylar cover. View more info
