SUMMARY- All interior photographs are black-and-white. This isn't a "How To" book, but an overview of what glass is, when and where it was made, and what it's been made into. There is no way they could do an exhaustive overview of the subject in 32 pages, but it is entertaining and comes with a couple of pages of source material references.
