The geometric orientation of Art Deco and its brilliant hard colors make this style perfect for the medium of stained glass. This collection contains 91 newly rendered, yet authentic, Art Deco patterns, which constitute a rich source of ideas for stained glass workers. The designs represent the major Art Deco motifs and sub-styles — abstract patterns in both straight-line and curved motifs; representations of men and women in characteristic 1920s garb; geometrically stylized birds, trees, and animals; and the flowing forms of flowers and plants that are a holdover from the Art Nouveau period.

I was disappointed to find that there were no color suggestions for any of the designs in the book. Also, the presentation of the drawings made the book look like a children's coloring book. Several of the designs would make nice stained glass projects despite the presentation.
True, at first it does look a little like a coloring book but that's the fun of it. Why does everyone always need examples? What happened to using your imagination? This is a form of art. This book gives you the room to make decisions about the colors and textures of glass you want to use, which is what I like about it. Actual stained glass artists create their own color combinations. In order to preserve these type of books the pattern is photocopied and then each section is cut out so you have a template to use to cut out the glass. If anyone's worried about color then just do what others do. Either use colored pencils to color the pattern so you have an idea of what it will look like or pic out glass that appeals to you. It's really not that hard.
This book is exactly what it claims and perfectly fit my needs. The designs are lovely, effective and quite usable.
