This is a very good book with outstanding photography and functional book binding. The basic skills reviewed are a bit redundant and don't advance the readers knowledge very far but it is a good review for beginner stained glass artists. The author should consider writing another book which assumes basic skill sets and focus on taking the reader further into advanced techniques and project design.
But still very nicely done book. Lays flat, great pictures. However, I'd hoped for more general advanced instruction techniques rather than projects. The book has some beginner information at the front which I dont think is needed in an advanced book and then it goes into three different types of projects, a lamp, a box and a mosaic. Unfortunately, none of which I want to make. I was hoping for more information on soldering tricks, choosing colors, working with different types of glass, etc. Its a good book and I did learn a trick or two but it is mostly going to sit on my shelf.
This book is fantastic! I love the step by step pictures and the detailed instructions. I have purchased other stained glass making books but this is by far the best one. I look forward to making some of his projects because he makes it look so easy.
