The studios of Louis Comfort Tiffany produced a wealth of stained glass objects at the turn of the century, but windows were their specialty. Now, with the help of this meticulously rendered pattern book, you too can replicate a number of these beautiful stained glass motifs. Designer Connie Clough Eaton has skillfully adapted a variety of authentic Tiffany window designs, capturing in 60 detailed black-and-white line illustrations all the grace and spirit of the originals. Included are patterns for landscape and memorial windows, panels, transoms, skylights, glass screens, and other "canvases" used by the stained glass artisan. Among the individual patterns are "Pumpkins and Beets," a window in the Impressionist style; "The Deep Blue Sea," designed by Tiffany and exhibited at the Libre Esthétique, Brussels, 1897; the Julia Wheeler Tiffany memorial window, a domestic panel featuring parrots and hibiscus; a peacock window, c. 1910; "Sir Galahad," the Ogden Cryder Memorial window in St. Andrew's Dune Church, Southampton, Long Island, 1901; a floral skylight, c. 1919, and many more. A splendid source of design inspiration, these lovely royalty-free patterns can also be used in assorted craft and coloring projects.

This book does contain Tiffany window designs which Tiffany created using Tiffany glass not modern glass. They reproduce very well when scanned. I use them in computer application of the designs. The book which has the postcards is "Tiffany Stained Glass Windows" by Alastair Duncan (ISBN: 0486253368)which I also bought. This book does have some colored images and when combined with the Duncan Postcards you can produce some nice images. Fifteen or sixteen of the postcards are images that are also in this book. I would suggest buyers consider getting them both.
Great Tiffany postcards. However, I thought I would be getting Tiffany stained glass patterns. The title is misleading, and the contents were a huge disappointment. A better description, or the words "postcards" in the title would be helpful. I'm sure I'm not the first one this has happened to.
This book is a wonderful idea. Unfortunately, most of the patterns do not have a colour chart and it makes it impossible to guess whether a piece of glass should be leaf or sky or bloom from the shape. Given the time and effort that would be required to complete these patterns in stained glass, not to mention the $$$ expense, I refuse to do suc risky guesswork.
