Contemporary Glass: a world survey from the Corning Museum of Glass; Susanne K. Frantz, Harry K. Adams, 1989 copyright 1989 The Corning Museum of Glass, ISBN 0-87290-120-3 (pbk) Large format catalog for the exhibition that reviews the history of art glass and the studio glass movement and presents the glass of the movement. My copy of the book was found in the Dallas Public Library, FAD, 730.0904 F836C 1989 which is history of sculpture; when I was looking for something else. The book is available in many public libraries and is considered a seminal reference for the movement.
