Schiffer Publishing, 610-593-1777, sends a flier promoting two new books, Women Working in Glass, by Lucartha Kohler, who did a nice overview of glass book; and International Glass Art, by Richard Wilfred Yelle, founder of UrbanGlass.  The first features 40 artists on 192 pages with 350+ photos at $59.95 [ISBN 0-7643-1807-1] while the second has 175 artists on 400 pages with 750 photos at $95. [ISBN 0-7643-1843-9]   The flier claims 3000 titles and mentions Glass Art, Tiffany, Marbles and Related Art Glass, and Frederick Carder and Steuben Glass. 2003-12-27

These images come from three books in the a series called A Schiffer Book for Collectors. I encourage furnace glass workers to examine these books because some of what they present is considered a style of modern hand worked glass, although most of these pieces were molded or mold blown.  These are copyright by the photographers or publishers and are used under copyright fair use of limited portions of a book for review and educational purposes. fair use copyright law link

These three books are nicely printed (in Hong Kong/China), identical format - square page - 220 page books with price lists, clearly intended for collectors, but offering excellent color pictures of mid-century colored production glass that I was not familiar with. The "River" is the Ohio and the firms are Blenko, Pilgrim, Kanawha, Rainbow, Bischoff, Fostoria, Viking, Morgantown, and others. There are additional books in the series.
